1200XLT hydroturf question...
04-09-2012, 07:46 PM #2
Just to clarify I'm talking about the gap between the hull and the trim piece not between the pieces of mat.

Same for me I did mine last year and I never had another piece...

I put a bead of RTV in there after I reattached the rear bumper, in your case maybe black?? I used white since I had light grey hydroturf.

Seems like an oversight on their part. I thought about the RTV, that's what I use to cover the rivets with, but I didn't know if it would have some strange reaction with the foam...wouldn't that be my luck. The very bottom of the two rear pieces ended up being a 1/2 inch or so too long, so because I had to cut it anyway I just used the extra to bridge the gap.

xray, do you have any pics of how you took the rear bumper off? I'm redoing mine and saving the rear platform for last. There are two rivets which are visible but then there appears to be two rivets under the bumper? I dont want to start drilling the two visible ones out until i know how to get to the two underneath. Got any pics or tips?

Two corner pieces come off first. There's three rivets I believe that hold each of those on. Once those are off you're left with just the center piece. There's a trim piece that slides out of the center of it which is only removable once the side pieces are off. It just slides in a groove and should come right out. Once that trim piece is out you'll see three or four more rivets, drill those out. Then the only thing holding it on is some foam tape. Gently pull on the piece and the tape should give pretty easy. Clean all that old adhesive off and you're good to go. The new kit should have the replacement rivets. I drilled a couple of the rivets out and had a bigger hole than when I started, so I just used a bolt washer and nut on those areas to reattach the trim piece. I then covered the bolts/rivets with black rtv.
