Default GP cub need some pics of the nose area. ARF

Hello, I have been given a crashed GP cub ARf that the nose is destroyed on. I have the wing fixed, but didn't get all the pieces of the nose. I am fixing this plane for my dad, so he can have another cub. If you could can you take a few pics of the nose of your plane with and without the cowling on. I need to figure out how far the firewall is away fron the base of the windsheild, and the if it sits straight up, and down.

I should have just thrown this plane away, but thought I could fix it. so any help from you guys that have one would be appreciated.

I wasn't aware they made any other size cub arf other than the 40 size. Mine is the 40 size with about an 80 inch wing. Fabric covering.

I still have the crashed plane in the attic. Some day I'll find a fuse for it! Funny to dig up a thread 2 plus years old!

Tower does sell the fues only..................of course it's 90 bucks, but since the engine firewall and such are critical areas, i would think that this would be a better way to go than piecing the nose together no?
