Thanks, that's good to know, I didn't know the spec changed. I saw them first on my buddy's 1988 41 Apache but also saw them on a Citation II and a Hawker Siddley(sp). It's amazing what one can learn on OSO.

Come to think of it, the ones Sunsation uses on the F-4 may very well be a phenolic material. They are beefy whatever they are made out of.

Carbon fiber is one of the options here:

four basic colors here:

NASA style here:

Trust me- the phenolic is VERY 'UV' resistant, and they're tough as nails- it would take a good shot with ball-peen to break one, and if someone is around your instrument panel with a ball-peen hammer, they need one used on them.

I forget the MILSPEC # (have it at work) for the toggle guards but the jafo is right, almost all the MILSPEC ones I have seen were non-conductive.
