    Jeremy,

    The original brackets were clamped to the landing gear tubes. From your other post picture your aircraft has a later style gear with a trailing edge fairing that would interfere with the clamp. Probably why they were never installed. Also ...it looks like your aircraft wheels were converted to the 600 x 6 with disc brakes. When I converted from expander tubes to discs I had to shift the wheel pant inboard and up to clear the caliper and lines.

    Vans aircraft has a similar wheel pant bracket that fits their wheel pants which I copied and adapted to the consolidated air wheel pant. Vans attaches to the axle in the holes for torque plate mounting with longer bolts with standoffs. Bend to match the angle on the pants and add the four DZUS springs and holes. Univair has the tube that goes inside of the axle with the single bolt for the outside.

    Can you, or your mechanic, make a set of brackets? That is what I did for mine.
