Help identifying this cowl for stick plane

Hi everyone. I want to put a cowl on a Hangar 9 Super Stick and the only one I've found that I like is the one shown in the picture. I already checked the MA plans and suppliers for a LW US conversion, but that's for the giant ultra stick, so no help there. Does anybody know where does this cowl come from? or any ideas of what cowl of similar size / shape can I use with a Super/Ultra Stick 60?

The firewall's outer dimensions are 3" 9/16W x 3" 13/16H, and the distance from the firewall to the propeller is 5" 1/4 to 5" 1/2 with the engine I am using.

Thank you.

that cowl looks something like one on a Shoestring, I think H9 had it out...I've you tried fiberglass specialities? They advertise in alot of magazines

Jtechmech: Yeah, looks a lot like the Shoestring. However I can only find the one from greatplanes. Regarding fiberglass specialties, not sure how to ask for a cowl that will fit if they dont have one specifically made for the SS/US 60. The one they have for the low wing ultra stick conversion featured in AM mag is for the giant 1.20 ultrastick.

Redh: the phaeton may fit as well, but seems like the cheeks are a bit wide. Would it be possible for you to measure your firewall and see if it is close to the measurements I posted?

measure the fuse at the cowling and ask them if they have anything that will fit.....don't forget to measure the length as well as the fuse

I can't measure the fire wall without takeing things apart but my replacemnt cowl indicates it will probably be to short 4 3/4 ".

Here are some more measurments if you can follow them.
Cheek to cheek outside 6 1/2 " Top to bottom at back of cowl 5 3/4 "
firewall to nose 4 3/4 " cheek hight 1 3/4 " cheek lenght 3 1/4 "

Looks like it would be a bit short unless you wanted to make a spacer. ENJOY !!! RED

Thanks for taking the time to take and post measurements Red. Unfortunately, this cowl is a bit too wide and short for my setup.
