Seems like easy enough to do at the time of overhaul. ...

Yet another PA-28 wingtip query... by Mike Spera
We've got some Madra droop-tips on our straight-wing -180. Although we've enjoyed their performance (good slow-flight characteristics, unchanged cruise/top speed), my partner on the plane can't stand the looks. So, we're looking to put Hoerner-style ones on. As far as I can tell,...
