Default Cowling Hinge Pin End Cover

Does anyone make or know of a vendor on this site who makes a cover for the hinge pin for an RV8? something that can be mounted flush on the forward end of the cowling or are these always custom built?

You might consider running the pins through from the rear; the forward baggage compartment. Easy to do and they are out of sight.

Iíve used these ones from Vans Aircraft on all 3 of my RV builds. They work well and sit as flush as you want to make them.
