Hal,

Welcome to our porterfield Airplane Club. Have you had that Model T all these years? That's really cool! That's a good looking 172 also.

You might talk with LeRoy Blum in Nine Mile Falls, WA about your wing problem. He is known as "The Porterfield Guru" his E-mail is: llhavenhill@gmail.com.

Also Joe Rankin is the Porterfield Type Certificate holder. If you look in our "Notes" section and under "Porterfield Aircraft Certification" you will find his address and phone #.

I will also put out the word to all other members of you wing problem and maybe one knows something.
