Default RV-10 N24YM's new paint job

N24YM just left Fulltron's paint shop. A set of polished aluminum engraved wheel chocks are part of a Fulltron RV paint job. It's our way of saying thank you for your business.

Default Nice touch

Nice touch, those wheel chokes and some smart advertising.
Sharp looking paint job on a great plane.
It will be an attention grabber.

Nice paint job! What is the thing below the rear tie-down ring? I'm guessing it's to prevent damage to the rudder if the plane rears back while on the ground. If so, is there a vendor that sells that sucker or did you make it yourself?

Default We think that this would be used to protect tail

Fulltron's customer was not the builder of this RV-10, so the owner didn't know for sure. But from what it appeared to us is that this little piece of metal, which was secured to RV-10's tail with the tie-down ring, was to protect the tail of the aircraft from any tail strikes. As a builder of two RV's myself, I think it was a great idea. My RV-14 was designed with a tail protection, aka tailwheel. IF I was building a tricycle plane I would definitely add one of these. It appeared that it would be easy to add to any RV that has a tie-down ring on the tail.
