That's the stuff. I had used a goopy asphault-type spray in wheel wells before, so I guess that would work. I just wanted to get something on them that will take a bit more abuse than just a layer of paint.blink32 wrote:Hrmm, like the Tool-Dip stuff where you dip the handles in some sort of latex muck and it dries to a rubber finish? I haven't seen anything specifically that would leave any texture persay, but there's that tool dip stuff. You could use a spray can of the rubberized undercoating. Scuff the bars and that would yield a grippy surface also. Although I don't know for how long.
That would be great.guinnessjim wrote:my guess is you could cut and cap some appropriately size pvc pipe for your container/mold...pbby be a PITA, w/ substantial room for error, but could be done. as for the material, i have in the past used a compound to mold connections for underwater cables...we used these cables in the marine environment, so the material had to be durable. pretty certain it was 3M compound, black when mixed, came in a two part bag. will see if i can dig up some more info for you.
When I stand on mine, I open the doors. I have the heel of my foot on the slider & my toes on the door sill. I deal with my kayaks all summer & haven't had a problem. I typically just stand on the tires, but there are a few straps up front that I have no choice but to use the slider as a step.on a similar/another note: while i can't wait to get rid of my 'steps', i do make use of them when securing loads on the rack...anybody have an idea of which sliders might serve double duty? looked as if the shrockworks might offer a little more to stand on...any thoughts from those of you who might have seen both?
