Could anyone suggest a good prodict to put between a front wing ant the inner wing before you bolt them together?

I used a product called 'Arboseal' which comes as a 1/2" wide 1/8th"thick
coil which is long enough for quite a few wings! It is available from 'Minor
Developments' on 01562 747718

I have learnt the end bit where it attaches is actually a drainage hole. I wonder why they discontinued the piping for the front wings. My MM has them.

..........again ??

:D :D


On an everyday type car, I prefer to use piping between the front wings & body. It's a lot easier to carry out "minor" adjustments that usually seem to be needed.

I don't think so :) It was something I was interested to learn, and so passed on :D I'd wondered for years why it was designed so that a puddle collected there.
