Default Gear leg fairings and intersection fairings.

Hi I just bought an rv6 that needs a little work. One of the first things. I would like to do is fix the gear leg fairings. At this point i think it would be easier to just order new gear leg and intersection fairings but wondering which ones are the best to go with. After searching i found a couple different companies make the intersection fairings but is vans the only one thay sells the gear leg fairings? Which are best? Tia!

My hangar mate recently replaced his RV-6 metal leg fairings with Vans fiberglass. They fit well and did not need much fitment work.

After seeing the quality, I wish I had gone that route instead of more expensive intersection fairings from another vendor.
