begin with you cannot see the entire area of the center section with the wings
on. The area on the center spar behind the wing tank cannot be inspected &
this is where we are finding the most corrosion. My son & I have been
working on Coupes for several years & have found the following Coupes to
have corrosion in the center section:
had a 4" piece of the lower spar cap missing
you would like you can come to Springfield, IL & look at these parts as we
my experience if it has no corrosion it would take at least 5 years for
corrosion to occur. The cost would be about 4 or 5 hours of labor to pull wings
off inspect & put the wings back on.
