Anyone know where to find a few of these? HZ has been backordered on these for quite some time. I could use about a dozen at the rate I keep breaking them.

Thanks!

Packing tape is your friend :).

Last time I busted one up, I colected as many of the pieces as I could find. Then I sat down with a roll of packing tape and a hobby knife and pieced it back together. Tape both the inside and outside of your joints.

I've been flying with the "franken-cowl" for weeks now ... much stronger than it was before I broke it and not significantly heavier. You can't even tell it's been busted up, until you look close. Be careful to mate the edges up real close, and use small strips of tape at first. Then re-inforce with wider strips that cover multiple cracks at once. I used a pair of vice grips (clamping lightly) as a third hand to hold things steady as I applied the tape.
