    WTB streamlined metal bungee fairings and end caps

    WTB metal streamlined bungee fairings for non hydrasorb struts. I already have one, measures approximately 14" x 8" x 3" this is for non hydrasorb struts PA-11 and early PA-18 style.. Looking for 4 end caps too, measure approximately 7.5" x 3"

    So are the tear drops different between the non-bungee and bungee gear?

    Do you mean the end caps? different between the hydrasorb and non hydrasorb gear? I believe the the front to back dimension is longer on the hydrasorb, might be different on the height too, but not sure. I know part numbers are different between the two.

    I found the drawing for the non-hydrosorb struts and they show 7 5/8" on the long axis and 2 5/8" on the short. The hydrosorb covers measure 9 5/8" x 3 1/2". I have a set of the smaller ones with my L18C project that have worn through the ends and a set someone hand made that don't look so good. I have quite a few of the hydrosorb style covers. There was an airline pilot in Guam making these and selling them on eBay

    Steve you wouldn't happen to know the measurement on the non hydrasorb strut of the tubing where the bungee wraps around. I'm assuming since the height of the fairing is 2 5/8 that it must be just slightly less then that. I'm looking for a measurement for that cross tube where the bungees wrap around, total distance from one side to the other. I also need the measurement for the end plates. Thanks

    Here's what I have. They were to go over the bungee gear.

    7" endcaps
    2 grommets are 7/8" ID
    2 grommets are 1" ID
    Covers are 13" long, built to wrap the 7" endcaps perfectly.

    The fellow that Steve mentioned making end caps in Guam makes two sizes, 9.5" long for hydrosorb and 7" long for bungees. They used to be $32/each, they are now $24/each.

    I'd sell my parts collection for assembly and install for $200.

    The ones that Don Jones sells on eBay were copied from Skip's Pa18-95.
