wing tip leading edge

Post by pmanton » Tue Sep 24, 2013 20:56

Does anyone have any pictures of the factory wing tip leading edge installed. I've found several pictures of modified and non factory tip leading edges but none of the factory piece.

I am installing NOS Safe Air stuff. I am interested in how the part lies along the spar on top--how close to the tip bow it comes, what that little flap looks like after it is bent over and drilled. I'd like to look at the bottom view if it tends to bow out between the tip rib and the aileron bay rib. Any help would be appreciated.

I have to believe that since the part is a Safe Air part, that it will fit, and it is me that is screwing it up. :(

Thanks

He gave up on the factory piece and made his own. However his piece was WA and mine is Safe Air so I'm bound and determined to make it fit. :)
