TF Corsair gear repair.

Top of wing above gear got some 'easy sand;.

Sanded and 'feathered'.

Some ugly monokote finishes that repair.

One gear needs new parts so, fortunately, I had a spare set of gear and 'popped' those into the wing.

Can put the other gear in as soon as the glue dries on the left main.

Had to remove both side frames from one gear to remove the 'bends'.

The side frames on the other main had the holes 'ripped out' so new parts were ordered.
Still have to determine why the engine quit 'in flight'. Still had fuel in the tank. The tank was tilted forward but that may have been the result of the hard landing plus I don't remember it tilted during assembly. My LOW needle was at 1 1/4 and Casey at DA recommended 1 3/4 so I reset both needles with High to 2.
