Skis on the Super Cub

It is time to get the skis out. There is nothing like the sound of a super cub landing on snow in the dead of winter when the air is crisp and there is no other sound to be heard!
Here is where I got them:

By the way, I have never had a problem without a tail ski. The tail wheel just follows along Actually sometimes I have a hard time getting the super cub to stop when it lands on snow, I think the tail wheel probably helps slow it down just a little.

You had to use your own wheel collars right ... and set screws?

I baught these and they look great ... but I realized The gear on the cub is thicker than 1/16 ... I think its more like 3/32 or 5/64?

Could you send me a few more pics of how you mounted these ...

I used the the mounting hardware that came with the skis. I don't remember if I had to ream the collets out or something. It has been a couple years. As far as more pics... there aren't really any more angles that I could show. I think everything is displayed in the 3 pictures above. Just look closely and you will figure out where everything goes :-)
