Ram Air Vent Tube and Pitot Tube Cover


Corbin
 

Can anyone point me to some covers that fit our little pitot tube and fuel vent tubes?

Bruce - I just watched the Zoom and if you remember the size and source for the one you had on top for your ram vent tube please let me know.

Thanks,

Corbin Ge!ser

1/4” should get you fixed up with ram air.  You can just use some Clark foam and make a filet behind the tubes to make them more aerodynamic and stiffen them for a solid mount.

Corbin,

If you subscribe to Kitplanes, they actually had a DIY article on how to make your own covers a few years back.
