Does anyone know where you can get a set of those stainless steel guards for the tow bar?
Thx

Did you mean the ones that go on the NLG fairing where the tow bar attachment point is?
IIRC a member of this forum used to make them and offer them for sale but he was asked to go from here.
I can't remember why and what his name was .
I also know one mechanic who produced a home made solution (one-off) it is not that hard to do...

I was never able to get Dillons Aviation to return phone calls or email messages to get anything from them. You may have better luck.
