AeroSplat EZ Cool Cowl Flap Custom Parts

In reviewing Ed’s Good Plane Living installation post of the AeroSplat cowl flaps I wanted to go a step further with a design that had fewer pieces and easier assembly. I came up with three custom parts (Van’s P/N F-10108C will be used and F-10108A will be modified to add angle brackets but that won’t require custom parts). Here are pictures of my design.

Design files are available and I did make a few extra parts but I am hesitant to offer them until I have my cowl flaps installed and operational.

    Thank you for the innovative effort. I would be very interested in the design files.

    Looks awesome. Was it a tight fit? Ed was the pioneer. Where do the angle brackets come into play? Sent you a PM on Vans

      Thanks! I haven’t gotten them installed yet, I got them ordered early so that I wouldn’t have to wait when I got around to the cowling work. The holes are there for the angle brackets (down middle) and will replace the Van’s bent part.

    Hi! Thanks for posting this. Just checking if by any chance you’ve already tested them by now? Would love to see your files.
