Out of interest how much sikaflex did it take to fit the console to the deck?
And Chewy will have to get his sorted soon now
It is the steering wheel that flexes, it is a Teleflex but not robust enough when smashing the waves. Also don't get much leverage so will be looking at something slightly bigger. The only problem is i positioned the gauges based on the smaller wheel so might be obscured with the larger wheel?
Also have a Plastimo 53 litre fuel tank but is leaking fuel somewhere on the circular plate. I tried tightening up but still leaking. Maybe i will have to use an instant gasket or something. Have you had problems with your larger tank?
I am pleased with the overall result and did cost me more than anticipated but hey?
I used a complete tube of Silkaflex and secured with screws every 6 inches. Seems solid enough.
Also came across a great Bramber roller coaster trailer which i got for a snip so overall i have a really nice package which is so east to tow and launch.
Had a laugh yesterday had a few scary moments when the thing went airborne. Had my son on the back who was doing his jacket up i accelerated and he flew straight of the back of the seat luckily he didn't hurt himself...
