    Hello
    New Forum member , 56 Pacer Driver. Im looking to compile a list of Good shops in Southern California that practice the dying art of cloth aircraft repair. Im based out of SEE . As far as I can tell not any shops down here that are know for cloth repair. I dont go to Brown Field so there may be someone down there.

    Im looking to have a sky light installed

    I have used
    West Coast Air Creations- Flaybob

    Who else is out there ?

    Give Dan Torey at MARS in Santa Paula a call. He’s one of the three recognized Bellanca experts in the country. Lots of experience with dealing with wood, tube, and fabric aircraft.

    I wonder if the people over at Planes of Fame at Chino might have good recommendations?

    Bill Hickle at Inyokern has been known to do fabric work in the past. He did a great job on the control surface recovering of a Blanik Sailplane based at IYK.
