    Rear arches

    Just remembered, I haven’t sealed my rear arches and I’m at IVA in two weeks??

    Will it fail if not done and what the best solution, I think you’re not supposed to fibreglass them if I’m correct?
    Regards

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

    Hi Craig,

    I was told to use tiger seal or similar to build up and seal between the arches and boot. If you Fiberglass it will pull on the arches and show a depression in the external arch.

    This will be the second AK I’ve done at Kidderminster.

    Took mine to Kiddy, passed then realized i hadn't filled the rears, done now. But I think its imperative to do the fronts to prevent fumes so that's why the issue didn't come up.

    P.S don't forget to triangulate your roll hoops for Kiddy.

    The appointment was booked about four weeks ago.

    However, they called me on Thursday last week to cancel the appointment due to equipment failure at Kidderminster.

    I’m booked book in again for the 28th April.
