    AK Boot Gas Ram Brkts

    I'm in the process of fitting the AK boot gas rams.
    The brackets supplied are are about 6 inches long.
    i.e the bit that is meant to be bonded to the underside of the boot.
    When you offer the brackets up only about 3 inches contacts the body due to it's contour.
    Am i missing something? Do they need to be bent to match the body or can I just cut them to length.

    Cheers

    Mike.

    What did you use to bond those Steve?

    The only thing I could get to stick was P40

    Hi Craig, I used some body filler from Toolstation, Think it was called Big Boy !. Seems to have done the trick and I also used it for sticking some cable ties under the wings. All still in place.
