    Tunnel reinforcement

    Sorry to post another one of these , but a lot of the tutorials are down. I am trying to see if anyone still has a complete walk-through (RX971 ?) on the DIY method? I know that there has been some discussion as to what the best way to do it is, and I just want to make sure that I get it right the 1st time.

    Also, what the best epoxy and CF to use? The marinetex epoxy system and thickest satin CF on ebay? Is there anywhere local where I can pick up this stuff?

    THanks.

    Can you hang on for a few days. We might have a cost effective solution by next week.

    Sweet,
    will it actually FIT, compared to the r/d one...or will it have to be ground down as well.

    Use the West System Epoxy if you do the CF Reinforcement yourself.

    If you do the R&D reinforcement, I know WFO uses Marinetex over the 5200/4200. Marinetex is stronger to set the R&D kit in place.
