Default Step Caps

I think I saw where the 12i has end caps for the WD-1233L&R steps. Anyone know the part number?

I purchased some black plastic end-plugs that fit the RV-12 step ends perfectly. See my old VAF forum entry below:

If you want to fill those somewhat unsightly tooling holes on your RV-12's wing tip bows and stab end ribs, you might want to use the following finishing caps:

-- Hillman Arrow Clips - Nylon (White) #394150-C (for the 3/16" holes)
-- Hillman Arrow Clips - Nylon (White) #394148-A (for the 1/8" holes)

I found the above clips at my local ACE Hardware store.

To seal-up the ends of the foot steps, I used the following plastic end-plugs:

-- Hillman Round Cap Plugs (Black) 3/4"

I found these end-plugs at LOWE's.
