Default P-51 Mustang Restorers - Canopy

My name is Norm and I'm heading up the restoration effort on a rare
P-51H Mustang at the Chanute Air Museum. We are trying to find a replacement
canopy for our Mustang with little success.
We are asking all Mustang restorers to look in their storerooms for that
canopy that looks right but doesn't fit a D or K model Mustang frame.
We are led to believe that the canopy we need also fits the P-82 Twin
Mustangs, although opinions vary on this.
If you, or anyone you know has such a canopy collecting dust in the back
room, please contact me via email through my web page at

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Likewise, If you have any North American Aviation parts that have a part
number that begins with "117-" please let us know. We are interested in just
about any original P-51H parts we can find.
