Default Dave patrick p-18 need a expert on the landing gear pics added

Guys hope this is in the right form , so here goes. I got a nib dp p-18 here on the flea market and it has many missing parts, but the parts are the same that are used in the hanger 9 1/4 cub arf, orded all the missing parts and trouble off the bat, the p-18 fuse is not as wide as the hanger 9 , so the mains are to wide, so should i bend the gear or cut it , then what happens to fit where the axle goes , will post some pics, thanks frank

I'm fairly certain that Robart makes gear for DPM Cubs. Fiberglass Specialties makes the bungee covers. hope that helps.

Frank, I would shorten the spring loaded legs enough to pull the axel's level or slightly shorter so the tires bottom will lean in with no weight on the L/G Once you figure out the correct length and cut, try to use a drill press to drill the new mounting holes. Cut the end oposite the bungie covers Your gonna have to mod/cut down the center cross brace also so it fits the mounting brackets, get that done first, then tackle the sprung legs. A little dremmel cut off wheel work & new holes and you'll be all set! I'm no expert, but I picked up a H-9 Cub a few weeks ago, and can see by your pics what needs done.

Your a lucky dog to find the PA-18, thats what I really wanted, but settled for the J-3, Wanna Trade?
