Single engine baffles: 180 / 250 / 260, but not the 260C or 400.

I have temporarily halted this process; my one-man operation [me] remains too busy. These engine baffles are the most time-consuming and least profitable of my services. So rather than continue to piss-off those waiting for so long, and add more tothe waiting list I'm changing strategy. Additionally I would be willing to teach a sheet-metal person the art of making these baffles. I have patterns and tooling available.

These engine front baffles are considered a “repair” which means I need your old baffle[s]. They are every bit as good as brand-spanking new and better in some respects. They are typically powder coated glossy black but different colors are available, some at extra cost, within the realm of the power-coater’s color inventory and schedule. A really special color may delay shipment. The baffle will come complete with the felt sealing strip stapled using the Bostitch wire stitcher just as Piper Aircraft did at the factory, they also have the felt surround at the oil cooler opening for the left side baffle.

Ok, so much for the sales pitch. I realize Piper probably sold these for 50 bucks once upon a time, long long ago. Today they are time-consuming for me to make [repair]. If you don't like the baffle I don't squabble; your purchase will be refunded. In other words, inspect it, if you don't like it, don't mess with it. They are so pretty you may order an extra set just to show off or even hang them in your den.

For descriptive purposes the pilot's seat is the left side of the airplane, even in the United Kingdom.

This 260 belongs to Joe Hand in Beloit, WI.

Handsome color however the extra cost for this chrome/clear process is $35 per baffle.


This 250 is Pierre Schmit's from Switzerland. Pierre has the baffles, wiring harnesses, cannon plug, and gear indicator light kits. Darned if I can remember the details of where this photo was taken. I promised Pierre that I would put this photo on my website a very long time ago. There are more photos from Pierre in the various photos page.

Brochure for the forward left and right baffles.

Installation instructions. This bound booklet is included with each baffle order.

Batch of completed baffles. Don't let this stock-pile fool you regarding availavility. I used to have the time to make them in large batches; that is no longer true.

260 baffles in chrome powder coat - these are handsome. Warning; extra cost for this chrome/clear process is $35 per baffle.

Here are the black powder coat options; flat, semi-gloss, and glossy.

This is the original stapler [officially a Bostitch wire stitcher] which was surplused from the Piper factory in Vero Beach, was originally used to staple the felt seals to the engine baffles. I bought this more than 12 years ago from a hot tip; it was collecting dust in a hangar in Vandenburg, FL [Tampa]. What an asset for another finishing touch, just like the Piper factory.
