Hello Again Steve, Here are the remainder of the KIS TR-1 landing gear pant
photos that I have promised you:

0136: This is a pic of the right main landing gear pant which was supplied
(along with attaching hardware) by Van's. All projecting interface fairing
with the landing gear strut fairing was created by me by molding fiberglass
over clay. The main landing gear strut fairing (not pictured) also came from
Van's.

0138: This pic shows the two halves of the pant (forward and aft). Yeah, I
know that the hole for access to the tire air filler valve is a little
ragged.## It is hard to hit that location precisely. I could grind it into a
perfect circle and come up with a manufactured cover for the hole, but I
have been using the same 2 inch wide white 3M glider assembly tape to cover
that hole that I use to close the trailing edges of the Van's provided main
landing gear strut fairings and it works great.**

Any questions?

OC

##PS: If you install wheel pants you will have to come up with some sort of
removable valve extension in order to test, and if needed, refill your tires
with air. Pulling the wheel pants off every time that you want to check /
refill tire air status is not a good plan.
