2B Fitting Front Wings drilling holes


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

my front wings on my 2B Superspec have been repaired and I now have to refit them. Does anyone have any idea of the correct way to mark measure then drill the mounting holes ?

The wings had previously cracked and are now whole again but I do not wish to ruin the refurbished wings.

 

Thank you for any assistance.

 

Cheers

 

Steve

Many people including myself don’t bolt them for that exact reason they crack. We bond them it’s how gbs Caterham etc still fix them now. I used tiger seal it’s a black pu adhesive widely used in car repair body shops and when it sticks it sticks. 

I first riveted some metal corner trim they use when plastering a house you give a larger bonding surface area. Then applied plenty of the tiger seal and sat the wings into the position I wanted them with supports and leave to set. For good measure I then ran some fibreglass on the underside of the arch and over the fixings to be safe.  

 

Hope me that helps. Mike.

Hi Andi😊

hope you and your family are all well and enjoying the sunshine today ?

Thank you as always for your kind words and input ✅

So I am guessing no one has had their wings blown off then ?

 

Will investigate further 👍🏻

Stay safe and well all please 🙏

 

Cheers 🥂
