    trim tab shims

    has anyone had some made like Bruce's for his gprsho? are they available from riva? What are the recommended sizes to have on hand?

    if no one makes them, I may have some made. probably have to order a bunch tho. . . anyone interested in some?

    How about......

    Thin sheets of Lexan and a box knife?
    Tin sheets from Lowe's and some tin snips?

    Or just some plain ole washers

    I hate washers! they're such a pain in the ass to install. i could go the plastic route. I know someone with a laser that's not affraid to use it

    I just wanted to see if anyone was interested in stainless shims.

    Those shims would make it nice. different thicknesses? .010 and .020 thicknesses would be good

    Well guys, i just got a quote back, and it's pretty steep. A set of 6 pcs will cost well over $70 if I order 10 sets. the more i order, the less they cost per set, but it's still pretty pricy.
