|These fuselage landing gear strut fairings that slip over the landing gear struts are better than those manufactured by Cessna because they are made of fiberglass rather than a royalite type material, that bends and cracks after a short time on the aircraft. Fiberglass has the following advantages over a royalite type material, it is approximately six times stronger and 12 times stiffer, it resists ultra violet light and weathers better, and it keeps its chemical composition intact much longer. With all these advantages these will probably be the last landing gear strut fairings that will ever have to be installed on the aircraft. And even should these fairings be damaged through some unforeseen circumstances, being made of fiberglass, they will be easily repairable. They are all split so they slip over the landing gear strut. These kits are manufactured under a FAA PMA authority.|
This fairing is nothing like the original. Its light weight & flimsy. I may yet return it.
these fairings are actually smaller than the OEMs and though the instructions say to heat with hot water and mold to the plane, there is not enough material to actually cover the area that the original fairings covered.. sent back for a refund less 15%
