    Actually they’re filled and sanded so when I get home from my trip I’ll post some better pictures of the finished product completely.

    Ok here are the filled and sanded fairings. Not a huge update, but been working a ton lately and should’ve posted them last week. I’m using #6 machine screws for securing the fairings. Tinnermans on the wheel fairings, but not on the transition fairings since there wasn’t much material to countersink them.

    Looking great Greg! we do not drill the axles because different peoples wheels line up in different places. you do have some adjustment with the different holes on the axle nut but we just leave that up to you to tighten the nut properly and then mark the axle at that location to drill.

    Looks like the same modeling clay I'm using to build the fairing molds at the cowling and at the wheelpants on my Ultimate. Side note- HOLY COW. It is a PAIN to fit and align new wheelpants to a plane. :)

    Yes it is a pain! That’s why I hired a friend of mine to help out. and as for the putty we used it is called Sculpwood.
    Cheers, Greg
