Bumped Ito a T-18 builder in Texas, he used a twin Comanche nose bowl on his Plane. The bowl was a good fit for the plane and needed little modification. LoPresti makes a twin Comanche nose bowl that is supposed to increase cooling and speed plus it just looks good. Has anyone tried to use a LoPresti nose bowl on a T-18? Chuck

The popular early cowl was the twin commanche style (look at ACS , they still offer it). It's not the same dimensions as the actual PA-30 nose bowl, just styled after it You may ask a Mustang II builder though, several of them have used the actual twin commanche cowl. Of course Sam James offers a Lopresti inspired cowl for them too, so that may help answer the question.
