Default WTB-Spinner

I dinged mine up. Was thinking a polished aluminum spinner would look nice on my RV-9A. Are there any aftermarket spinners like this out there? Thanks.

This link will get you to Cummings. They make Aluminum Spinners specifically for RVs. Fits Vans back plate. I have one on my -8. It looks great.

Google Cummings Spinners for Utube video on how they are made.

Another +1 on the Cummings spinner. He has good instructions on fitting the spinner to the back plate and fwd bulkhead. His techniques were interesting and I learned a few things doing it. Even if you aren't interested in the spinner, Youtube the fitting instructions, they are effective.

If you have an O-360 with a Sensenich prop I have the Sensenich spinner for it. It comes ready to mount, and is alodined. It should polish up nicely.
