If they don't have Yosemite Sam or a nekked lady on them I'm not interested.

Great idea!

Especially for us impaired guys with
the silly little wheel up front!

Although, it is still my intention
to add wheel pants once I get
Lima Charlie in the air!

Later!

There are many things that happen really fast when you are
flying an airplane. There is no sense in rushing any of the others.

I would much rather be looking down at the runway, than up at it.

A Problem with that design and also traditional wheel pants is that if there are small stones in the mud or if landing on dry gravel, stones can get spun in between the guard and tire and slash it open and flatten the tire. Dangerous at any time but, especially annoying in short airstrips or in the back country.

The black ones are STC for Cessna taildraggers and the dudes in Alaska swear by them. I live on a cattle farm and cow shit is a huge problem. The bottom of my quads are covered in it. I talked to the gentlemen in Australia and he said they worked quite well
