Les Henson Posted April 10, 2006 Share Posted April 10, 2006 Although I have a few second hand wings, I decided to opt for nice new ones for catflap. They arrived today, and apart from the suspicious yellow stain, they looked ok, a few light scratches here and there, tons of bubble wrap (so wet-suit out later for some fun! ) I was kinda expecting everything to be rubbish, but for the money I was fairly pleased with them. The inner wing is a seperate item from the outer skin, and after a small amount of persuation, the two bits fitted together ok. The edges all lined-up nicely, and I imagine that once sprayed - it'll look good. I noticed a quality control sticker, which seems a bit stupid, as on closer inspection there are a few things that are just plain rubbish. Pics and comments:- 'Passed' what? Water, sell by date, wind, that one by? The holes for attaching the inner to the outer wing were pretty carp, someone had got in there with I suppose a screwdriver, and 'worked' the hole into this shape. I take it to make a slot, rather than a hole. Kinda negates the difficulty of lining two holes up I suppose. Blunt drill bit perhaps, or the morning after? Obviously the spot welder went to the same pub as the guy with the drill Anyway - it all went together surprisingly well. Hardly surprising when you have fixing holes the size that they are! Just needs a coat of that luvverly blue Les. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
