Default Gary Hunter wheel pants & fairings ??

I have these + gear leg fairings on my Harmon Rkt. Were installed 7 yrs ago 2 owners back. The left pant and both gear leg fairings need replacing. Anyone have a contact # for him? If not, I'll replace all of it with either Sam James or F-1 product. Thx, Marvin

Default Rocket gear leg fairings

I have Vans fiberglass fairings on my titanium Rocket legs. Worked perfect for 1250 hours and may get another 1250 hours out of them. The trick is to overlap in the middle (telescoping) like the old style Van's aluminum gear fairings. Titanium flexes too much for a one piece aluminum or fiberglass gear fairing.

Steve, Fairings Etc.

Gary Hunter... aka as the Shell "answer man" and "the glue guru". Gary recently got married, retired from his daily grind of developing resins for worldwide customers, and is in the last 10% of his full restoration of "cupcake". Guessing he still has the moulds for your parts... cell contact: two eight one, four three three, 8478.
