    Bumper grommets

    Anyone got a uk source for the rubber inserts to fit to the body for the nudge bars to pass through?

    No, I'm not "repairing" it, I'm fine tuning its performance.

    Do you mean the angled grommets like the items finish line sell in the US?

    Yeah.

    I can see these at Europa

    https://www.europaspares.com/cobra-p...hange-355.html

    but then I can also see these on Ebay

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Original-...28ec%7Ciid%3A1

    But I think these like the proper job, but not in the uk

    If I order from finishline, will I end up paying import duty? Do they fit AK bodies?

    I ordered mine from Finishline - they fit the Dax body just fine so I can't imagine they wouldn't fit the AK too.

    You'll probably end up paying import duty - shipping is expensive and duty is calculated on top of cost+shipping. They'll be £50 grommets by the time you're holding them in your hand..

    Holy crap!

    Next time I'm in the US I'll bring a suitcase full back.

    When I bought them, the cost was $18 plus $24 shipping via USPS (the cheapest route), that's $42 or £34..

    £34 + 3.5% + 20% = £42, plus whatever the postal service charges to clear customs (£9, I think?) et voila.. £50 grommets

    I'm after some if you fancy sharing costs...
    Maybe some others are and we could do a group buy..
