- Inspection Hole Covers. We are offering new vintage style Inspection Hole Covers. We needed some and the ones from the catalogs just didn't look right, so we made the tooling to make our own. We patterned them from the old ones we had on our Waco. Made from aluminum with a beveled edge to sit around the plastic ring on the fabric. It has 4 louvers that locate the cover on the center of the hole and won't allow it to slide around. The spring on the back will hold it tight but still allows it to be easily removed. We have not lost one from the aircraft yet. $7.00 each plus shipping. Call Seth Wolfe. 310-344-0028 or
