    Default Fuel Tank Felt Parts

    I was looking to replace the felt on the three pairs of wings I am rebuilding and was amazed to find out that it would cost almost $200 per airplane for the felt on the fuel tank straps, tank cover ribs and tank bay rods. I found the specifications for the felt parts on the Piper drawings and got the felt cut to size and Cathy sewed the tank rod covers together. I had to place a minimum order so I have more than I need. If anyone else needs any of these parts here is what I have.

    Piper part numbers 10016-17, 10016-20 and 10016-21 fuel tank strap felt parts. All the felt to cover all four sets of fuel tank straps in both wings $30.


    4 fuel tank brace felt covers Piper part number 11034-00 that go over the tank brace rods where they exit the fuel tanks $30.


    Piper part number 180-497 felt that covers the fuel tank cover ribs to keep them from rubbing into the fuel tank $8 per airplane.

    Steve,

    I would be happy to purchase the fuel tank felt parts but your online shop appears to be no more. Would you consider making anymore or specifying the dimensions so that i could make some - $200 makes me suck in my teeth for bits of felt!

    Regards

    I bought rolls from Univair and they gave me the length information. Saved me a bunch of money. The lengths might be in my rebuild thread or I can dig them up. Rick at Univair is my contact based on being in STL, he is the one that set me up with all of it.
