Default 6 Bucks

Just heard back from Vans, $6 each. Not bad at all. Put them on order. This will save me a couple hours of marking, drilling, etc. I will put my old ones up for adoption for the price of postage.

Vans Tech Support says these new brackets with CNC machined holes work on current production -1 Wing kits.

The numbers required are on the left.
7 brackets/tank on the RV-7. Different on the -8?

Default Short 2

There are indeed 7 brackets. The part number for quantity of 2 are the ones nearest the wing root that get the nut plates on the spar. Needless to say its 12 + 2 that you need.

They matched flawlessly and are much better than what I could have done. Definitely a time saver. They are $6 each.

Yes, sorry thought I had updated the post. Should be 14 all together.
