Mounting of bumpers Old promo or kit bumpers that have screw hole mounting tabs are best mounted by threading a pair of round runners through each of the tabs on a series of bumpers. You then attach the two runners to the rack, hang it upside down and apply some silicone glue to the area were the bumper and runner meet. See photo #3
On bumpers that have no tabs we often glue them directly to the runner with silicone glue. You may find it useful in some cases to mount your bumper onto a cut off wire tie that is attached to the runner. See photo #4
Mounting wheels and hub caps Wheels from old kits & promos that have a stub on the back are best mounted between two flat runners with the stub down between the runners. Glue the back- side to the runners with silicone glue. Do not stand them on end. See photo #5.You may also mount them by super gluing a standard paper clip into the side of the stub and then attaching this to a single runner with a small nylon wire tie. See photo #6.
Hub caps or wheels that are flat on the back side should be glued directly to a single runner with silicone glue. See photo #7.I only a few cases you may mount trim rings or open mags with double back tape. In this case the backside of the wheel must be perfectly flat. Use this method only if you must and use only Scotch 3M brand foam mounting tape. See photo #8.
Mounting misc. parts Hood ornaments, light bezels and many misc. parts in which the back- side is not later seen, can be mounted with a dab of silicone glue to a flat stiff runner. See photo #9.Again in only a few cases you may mount small parts to the runners with the 3M double back foam tape. Use this method only if you must.
Mounting two sided parts. Parts that require plating to cover all sides should be mounted to a standard paper clip and then attached to a runner with a small nylon tie. Use a #66 drill bit (.033) and insert the clip with super glue to a strong area of the part. You may bend the clip with a small needle nose pliers to position it. Position your parts off the side of the runners, do not stand them up. See photos #10 and #11.
Leave adequate space between parts Do not crowd parts. Keep in mind that we must spray them with a base coat. See photo's for guide lines.
