Have thought of. My main hesitation comes from lack of knowledge of how critical 'sleekness' is to performance of these (in general) & this (in specific) gliders might be. Something else I've considered...and still in the mindwerx for that matter, is just cutting off the damaged portions of the butts in effect shortening the span maybe 4" or so, & joining them perhaps permanently. In effect, make 'em a 1-pc wing. I haven't even started repairs, in indecision about that one factor. If I can ever come up with a new set of wings, I'll go that way with the original set without a second's thought.
