What a difference,before when slipping,stalling or slowing the plane down the higher angle of attack would buffet and radle the top skin pretty well. Now one can feel the buffeting but no noise.

Thanks-I got lazy on the painting.

Bill, those external longerons look pretty slick!  Now you just need to make the colors match so they blend in better.  The flex and oil canning in the roof of the baggage compartment used to be pretty significant, glad to hear the longerons made the oil caning go away!

Sounds like a must have. What a great idea

Great Idea - and can be installed anytime. Thanks for the post.

Golly-one would have to be asleep to not feel the buffeting
