    Very good point, Todd. Titanium and/or Stainless steel bolts, nuts, washers and brackets MUST be used. Carbon steel and aluminum will turn to jelly in no time, especially if they're relatively small parts relative to the mass surface of the carbon fiber.

    Rich,

    Will be interesting to see how much your new spats weigh. On my Vagabond I have some fiberglass ones made many years ago and they weight 8 lb each!
    I mostly fly with them removed to cut down on AUW. Makes all the difference in an A65 powered Vag when touring two up!

    Tony,

    what are your Vagabond wheel-spat dimensions, i.e. length x width x height??

    I have just 'Google'd G-BCVB, and it looks to have similar Spat's to a Pacer.....
