wing & fuslodge repair

Postby barry9315 » Tue Sep 09, 2014 1:25 am

Is it feeable to fix damaged wing by reverse bending then reinforcing sub structure. i had a hard landing which forced my kolb mark 3 to tip on left side bending 5' end of wing at a 45 deg. also broke the 8" aluminum fuslodge 3/4 of the way through. can the fuslodge be repaired by sleeving it by overlaping and welding break with aluminum sleeve?
