    Default landing gear belly fairing pattern

    replacing damaged landing gear aluminum belly panels. mine do not match in pairs. both previously altered slightly (with snips). they even look as though they may be from a different plane. looking for patterns to fabricate replacements or used/new replacements if any even exist. thanks

    No one else has answered you yet, so I would check with Univair and see if they make them. I would be surprised if they don't.

    thanks fred. no luck at univair for gear pans or gear to fuselage bumper at shock cords. trying to keep as stock as possible. flattened out the existing ones best I could and will try to replicate new from there. thanks again. rh

    Were you able to replicate the fairings you needed? There are some details on the drawings which may help

    My plane was redone in 1989 after spending 25 years in a box, following a ground loop. I don't know if the fairings are original or not but I can definitely tell you that they too have been altered with "snips". I refurbished the entire landing gear in 2013 and stripped and repainted the fairings, smoothing out some of those "snips and they look great.
