I have a cart similar to the ones used in the factory to hold the fuselage when I get it to CHD but I'm thinking I'll bolt a couple 2x4's to the motor mount for the trailer ride to keep the belly off the trailer. I'll figure it out. I put the stab on and took some shots of it before I pulled it all the way down.

Hi Louis,
I posted your request to the group on Facebook directing them here, hopefully someone can give you some real life experience on how to safely transport your Cadet!
You can upload pictures with the “Attachments and other options” below the text box area. We would love to see it, keeps us updated!

  Thanks for your support. I'm sure I'll need help with some things. I am an A&P but have very little wood experience. Tomorrow I start pulling it apart to transport it back to my airport, KCHD, from KGYR where it has sat since 1977. The last entry in the logbook says it was put in storage then and there but I have heard roomers that it has flown since then. It actually looks feels and sounds pretty good but I'll know better when I get it apart and give it a really good inspection. Any tips on how to transport it without damaging the fuselage? Is it possible to attach photos?

Hi Louis,
Welcome to the Culver group!
While the forum has been pretty quiet there is some great support and several flying Cadets out there! 
We also have a group on Facebook if you have an account, several active owners posting pictures and videos.
Looking forward to hearing more about your Cadet and please let us know if you need any assistance getting it flying again.
Best regards,
Joe Burley

Hello I'm Louis Hudgin from Gilbert, AZ. I just purchased a long dormant 1940 Culver Cadet LCA N29295 s/n 164. It has been stored at the Goodyear airport in the Phoenix area since 1977. I keep my PIPER Arrow at Chandler and will disassemble the Culver and move it in with the Arrow. I see on the FAA sight there are a couple other Culvers in the PHX area. I'd like to meet those owners and any others that may be coming through the PHX area.

I have a continental C125 on a motor mount and nose bowl that was described as a Dart GC setup. I got it for the continental parts, but don't want to destroy the integrity of the unit if it has value to a Dart collection. Have pics.  Northern California

Congratulations Kevin,  I have over 1700 hours in the original Monocoupe Model "G" predecessor to the Dart and pictured on this site.  It is powered by a Lyc 150 and is a great flying airplane.   Post some pictures of your project.    Tim
