JP-
These tailpipes were from the initial run that Doug had made. I have had them on the shelf for several years and finally got tired of cleaning the exhaust stains off of the cowl every few hours. We used the existing Hanlon Wilson mufflers and only the tailpipes were changed.

I have an excellent airframe guy who contoured and flush-riveted sheetmetal patches flush with the outside skin with oversize patches inside the cowl. He then used J-B Weld to fill the edge gaps between the patches and cowl skin and painted the lower cowl on the outside. He did a very nice job.

It’s not really a purchase, but the bird is finally getting the polished spinner she deserves. The cost was the better part of a day spent with some sand paper and the polishing wheel.
