Rubber Suspenders






Had an idea to make up some rubber mounts for a while, and this is as good a time as any.
The holes in the rear mudguard were drilled 8.2 mm as it was known they were going to be pilotting the 1/2" Q Max hole punch. Punching the hole gives a lot cleaner edge to the hole, not like the hexagon a regular drill can give through thin shit.

The grommets are straight forward 1/2" (12.5 mm) wiring grommets, the top hats have been turned to match the bore diameter and thickness less 0.5 mm, just to snug up the fit.


Punching through......


..................... knocked out..................


................bushed in.


The guard weighs less than the bracketry, so it's difficult to see it not being alright.


I like this shot.
