    There are two types. Do you need the blister ones or the flat ones? The flat ones are simple to make, the blister one, not so much. They aren't terrible to make, but not as easy as the older ones. Looking for a photo of the blister ones.

        Wow! Those are NICE ones. Remember you are NOT supposed to trim off all the edges! They lay flat on the bottom of the fuselage. The flat square ones let a LOT of wind blow in.

          I cover the inside of the floor above the gear area. It helps cut down on drafts in the cabin.

            Mike, I have heard of others doing the same. What do you use to cover that area, flexible foam sheets?

                Mike, do you have any pics of how you cover the inside? I need to stop some of the fumes from coming up through the belly...Tim

                  never took any pics. biggest thing to do is to seal from the belly former to the floor tubing. I would cover the outside of the rear floor area between the gear legs to slow the air leaks. The triangle flller between the gear legs is just that, a filler. It doesn't seal crap. I would also install a soft rubber seal on the bungee covers to prevent as much air from coming as possible,
