This is a really nice product. Soft, flexible and easy to install. Best of all, when it’s done it looks like you knew what you were doing.

The seal is made of a supple rubber that is easy to bend of fold as necessary to fit in the gap between the wing and the fuselage. The width of the seal is perhaps a bit narrower than the original seal, so it may allow a slight gap between the seal and the wing walk. Soapy water and a plastic trim tool (https://smile.amazon.com/Manfiter-Removal-Pry-Kit-Fastener-Upholstery/dp/B07PZ6H16Y/ref=sr_1_9?keywords=plastic+trim+tool+set&qid=1567682150&s=gateway&sr=8-9 ) help greatly in sliding the seal into the gap. The plastic trim tool can be used to apply pressure on the round back side of the seal without damaging the paint. A pair of bent nosed pliers helped to pull the seal into position if too much pressure was used and the seal had slipped further into the gap than necessary.

I was able to do this in about 2 hours total time that is removing the old one, PIA and cleaning everything up I used a small 1 inch wide piece of dull metal to shove it in the crack without any lube at all, also it was cold as heck out, so the fuselage was probable at at a core temp of 20 degrees F

Very easy to install, with none of the problems people commonly describe when using other brands of wing root seal. Just push it into the gap using a screwdriver or similar tool, while in a warm hangar. No need to try to slide it in lengthwise. Some people recommend using soap or another lubricant, but we didnt even need that.

If you need to replace the wing root seal on a Piper Cherokee (PA-28) this is the one to get. It appears to be the same as the one installed in the factory. Do NOT purchase the other one that is for sale on this site (Part #05-00030) as that one is almost impossible to install and wont last. This is the one to get. Install it by smearing GoJo on it as you insert it along the gap between the wing and fuselage.

Fairly easy to work with and durable. Around the front curve of the wing root is a bit of a pain, but if 1 inch sections of the backing are cut, it’s fine.

Per the vendor they do not have PMA paperwork. It would need to be signed off by an A&P.

Q: How wide a gap will this seal as I would like to use it on my Hatz Biplane upper wings?

It is 1" wide.
