Hybrid_From_Hell Posted December 1, 2005 Share Posted December 1, 2005 K, Basically having now tested the 90 suspension mods I am happy that I can now "Finish Off". One of the jobbies to do is to recover the front turrets, but, having these longer (for the much much much longer front shocks) means the LR Black 90 "Caps" that screw fix to the inner galv wing won't fit....they need to be taller. I was thinking of welding up something, but they are going to be a bit of a RPITFA to do that way, so, I have thought about plan B. Plan B. Take the LR Black thingy, and saw off the "Mounting Face" this then could easily be extended by gluing / aralditing in to the "gap" a "Strip" of new extra Black plastic.... And now here the prob, what to use..... I have looked in both garage and workshop and a local ironmongers - can't find anything suitable. It preferably... 1. Needs to be black (but not essential) 2. Has to be between say 1mm and 2mm thick 3. Has to be a plastic, but one that won't go 'keeeerbang' when I try to bend it into a 6 ish inch circle to glue to shape ? 4. A strip of say 1 to 1.5 inches would be superb, but I can cut from a sheet if I have to.... So,.............. WTF could I just "Nip out" and buy to use ??, and from where ?? ....surely to god it can't be this tricky to think od something siutable ??, at the mo my minds a blank,............................ but enough of my medical problems....
