Yes, you got it Larry. What I'm saying is centerline of the wheel pant appears to not be parallel with the plane when it's level (flight attitude). The nose of the wheel pant is pointing slightly down and back end is higher while the plane is flying. I know it can be an optical illusion since the bottom of the back half of the pant tapers up to the point. But I'm definitely seeing wheel pants that are pointing nose down on some RV4's I'm looking at for sale. The pant looks level when the plane is parked, but in the air with the tail up the pant is pointing nose down. The ones that have this alignment seem to be planes in the late 80's, early 90's vintage. I was just curious if this is a mistake of the builder or if it is by design? Maybe to keep the wheel well openings in the negative pressure area so they don't "catch" air?
