    Wing Root Fairing Rubber Seal : Replacement

    I got new wing root fairings from Univair a few years ago. They were obvious military surplus of a certain age, and now the rubber extrusion has lost flexibility is starting to crack.

    Looking at the Piper drawing 12276, it is Miami Rubber Co. Rubber extrusion 1-796A, held on with Bostich rust resistant staples type SCCR 25 3/8.

    I did a cursory look thru Univair catalog but no joy.

    Any Cub Drivers out there know a source for the rubber extru and the staples ? Any alternate ideas for fastening the extru to the fairings instead of the staples - bonding ?

    Thanks as always- Whitecub

    I bought the rubber extrusions from Stoddard's in Anchorage. Instead of the staples just use safety wire and make the twist on the inside of the fairing.

    I used safety wire and stitched the whole thing without twisting behind each pair of holes. Looked good too

    I buy the rubber from Univair and A/C Spruce and use 3M weatherstrip adhesive to hold it on.

    Bought mine this spring from Univair & the rubber was stapled on the aluminum already.

    Steve: In Spruce catalog, which rubber extru p/n do you recommend ?
    Nimpo: I'm looking to replace the seal, not the whole fairing !!

    I think I have seen this extrusion in the Wag Aero Junk catalog also. Might be a safe thing to buy from them since they probably do not make it.

    Which rubber extrusion seal do you order for front windshield fairing do you order from Spruce catalog there are 4 different P/Ns for the almost the same seals?

    Univair sells the stuff that Piper used. I install it with 3M weatherstrip adhesive. I hate those staples Piper used. It is like the one posted on the left above. Can't find the interactive parts catalog on Univair's website now.

    I have a -12 with the square top windscreen. How well would the -18 Univair wing root fairings fit on my -12? Anyone know?

    Where’d you get it from?
    I got some from Univair but it lasted a couple years and cracked pretty bad.

    I have used U19657-000 from Univair which is right out of the Piper parts catalog on every Super Cub I have rebuilt and lots of others I have repaired with no known issues. https://www.univair.com/piper/piper-...moulding-2-ft/
