Default Flap motor arm cover

A good friend and RV-8A driver, Tom Doran, came up with this slick cover. It needs a #8 nutplate on the arm rest and a #6 nutplate on the rear seat bulkhead. It shares a #8 screw on the top aft of the side panel cover.

Attached is a template I used to make this out of 0.032? aluminum.

Looks good!

Do you have a higher res version of the template or a .pdf

That one is small enough that I can't read the writing, even when opening in a new tab and zooming in...

Thanks

Looks a lot like mine. I made mine extend just a little farther forward, to pick up that second screw in the lower side panel.
