Another item, from my Corona/Cessna makeover....
From a great company, Knots2U. Easy to install, obviously due to the “split”. Spruces up your bird.
Thanks Kent, Knots2U is great. I go there at least once a month.

Need help? Let me know!
Mine came without predrilled attachment “holes” for the screws. But yes, same footprint. Only caveat, they may align slightly differently due to split.
Glad to see they look good, I ordered a set a couple weeks ago for my Skylane.
I utilized white silicone on bottom fairings in any “gaps” to prevent water infiltration as best possible.
I am installing these same fairings on my 1964 182 right now. The slots in the fairings for the wing are off for the retractable tie down. I had to use a dremel tool to lengthen the slot. Also, none of the fairings fit exactly as my original fairings and the factory must have painted my 1964 with them on. Yes, I have the original paint. Always been hangared in WA state. There are areas with no paint around all four of the new fairings.
I also utilized a Dremel tooth for the tie downs. I was fortunate, my fairings alligned without painting.
Is the benefit purely the appearance or is there any noted decrease in interference drag and, therefore, an increase in cruise speed?
I know it would be pretty small but was just wondering.
