Hello Nelson,

the fact is that I did not loose anything. The previous owner took practically no care of the plane and I really don't know how he could fly with loose slats supports! I don't know either how and why the supports got loose. This is very dangerous due to possible inequality  of lift, but it seems that he was simply a lucky guy. The ribs were all where they should stay, I just exchanged some of them due to bad rivet holes. After an exhaustive revamping, the 701 is now fine and safe.
