Default Flap Motor Cover

Does anyone have drawings available for a cover over the flap motor arm that extends through the arm rest? Just thought I'd ask before reinventing the wheel!

Default Cover

No one in the back has ever complained about my uncovered one in 500 hrs of flying.

I think it would be extra work for little or no return. My two cent opinion, worth just what you paid for it!

I made one, about 30 min to make it and used one screw to hold it in. Very EZ!

I figured as much but it's always nice to follow the beaten path if there is one.

Not the best picture and I don't have a drawing, I just folded it with thin Ali and covered it in leather and stuck it on with Velcro

Use the Search tab and type in Flap Actuator Cover. There's a thread from dbuds2 dated 3-15-2009 that includes a link to a drawing for a flap actuator cover (look a few posts down the thread).
