One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

I bought a used CDC Shiva a few years ago on this forum.  The C clips that hold the fittings in place on the leading edge to connect the upper and lower spreaders are not attached to the LE.  Can anyone provide the dimensions along the leading edge to locate the fittings correctly?  Steve Thayer

The fittings should be roughly centered in the cutout areas.

The upper spreader should pass over the center of the rub patch.

Use tape first, instead of C-clips to position the fittings, then test fly.

You might even experiment with different positions if so inclined.

I looked at several photos taken of Shivas, although I don't own one.

Good luck.
