Been there before, put a new nicely polished mudguard on a perfectly good useable motorbike once, and because the rest didn't look as good I ended up completely stripping it to restore it and had to buy another bike to use in the meen time

Fair do's. At the very least I'd pickle 'em or the welds might rust. It'd be a shame to spoil your efforts for a 'appeth of tar

niro petersen or anchor eyes

Nasher hi

for the future since i saw you had a nice solution already...

the German company Niro Petersen has some kinky flush options (one with a ring and one with a removable boult thingy) they tend to charge you kilos instead of pounds for their gear..

Niro Petersen KG

by heart items number
1110 and 1111
or
1151 plus 1141

there are also semi flush 'anchor eyes' - i am considering to use them for my floor with the proper backing plate or anchoring below(which you cannot do i read) the deck since they have 2 boults/screws only:

4Uboot.nl - Home*::*Beslag*::*Wantogen*::*Verzonken want - ankeroog

Not sure which brand they are and if they/where they are to be found in the UK ..

the DIY option looks nice though ...

After all this time I finally got round to recessing these in the deck today.

We've found a way to afford to keep 'The Nashers Revenge' for another year, so are hoping to take it to Devon this year if we ever get a summer.

Excuse the state of the rest of the deck, it needs a scrub, which I'll do next weekend when the Sikaflex has had a chance to dry properly.

Today was the first Sunday we've had in months with no rain, so it was a good oppertunity to crack on.

And with the rings in place.

Next job is to build a small rack to screw them into when they are not in place.

That's an interesting question because of what I ended up doing.

Going over the top as usual I used M12 Acorn nuts, but then when I saw the size of ready made M12 ring bolts the rings looked stupidly large.

So I brought some M10 Ring Nuts, drilled and tapped them out to M12, then welded a short length of M12 stainless studding in them to make M12 Ring Bolts with a sensible size ring - Hope that all makes sense.
