Glad they solved the problem for you Tim. One of those things I'll need to get around to ordering. Just ordered a few more items for this winter projects. Replacing the caps will not be a long project.

Just wanted to let RV-14 builders know we have the aluminum replacement caps
in stock. The cost is $145.00 per set and if you would like your N-Number engraved it is an additional $45.00. These are not on the web site yet so direct
order would be the best at this time.

Default All aluminum (Top) RV-14 caps - please !

I am still in search of caps for my 14. Prefer at least all aluminum caps (Including the lift "tab") or better yet locking all aluminum caps. I am not sure if the Andair locking all aluminum caps will fit the SPRL flanges. Has anyone tried these? I was informed that the tab had to remain plastic or else galling would occur. Seems a thin plastic washer that you change every 10 years might help this issue but since I'm not a metallurgist anyone with more knowledge than me welcome to input. I understand properly adjusted the Vans caps will/might work just don't want to use light weight plastic caps on my airframe.

Aerosport makes an aluminum cap, not sure about the locking mechanism. They also do engraving.

Default RV-14 caps

I've 3D printed the center "tab" but my goal is to CNC one from aluminum. Aerosport makes a nice cap (Which I ordered). I can 3D print the tab to give it a color as I don't trust painting and later chipping. Aerosport is concerned with galling (With an aluminum "tab") but I think I have a system that should eliminate this issue.

I got my caps from Goeff at Aerosport and they are the best. I've had mine on for about a year and a half and have not had the first problem. I had mine engraved. Of course they meet the regs as far as labeling. I put red paint in the engraved part and polished them. These caps are definitely professional looking.
