I\'ve got an idea!
Between just reading the post regarding whether of not someone needed fender flares...and working today, I came up with an idea.
I know some people dont like to run flares because they get ripped off, etc. On our light aircraft, we use 1/4 turn CAMLOK or DZUS fasteners. These make it possible to remove an entire cowling with over 20 screws in a minute or less. Since they hold cowlings and other large skin compontents on at high speeds...I'd be willing to bet they could also hold on a flare for some abuse!
This way you could be legal to and from the trail, and have your flares off for the ride in 2 or 3 minutes.
What do you guys think?
