Alternate to fender welting

What to use between fenders and body
I've fitted the fenders (and other components) to be a nice tight fit without using welting between the body and the fender (rear fender for example). The fit is nice and tight with no gaps, but it feels like there should be something in between the two to stop chafing etc, but thin enough to not create a gap or show from the outside. I've wondered about something like "peel and stick" membrane or even some of the static cling clear vinyl. I use the static cling on the outside of the body to protect the paint from getting rubbed through the rest of the build process. Any ideas? Thanks, Bill

  • Good thought, might try that in awkard small spots.

  • I've also used the plastic dip that you use on tool handles. We've carefully brushed it on at all contact locations. works well.

  • Thanks, I ordered some last night. Sounds similar to my static cling, but should hold better.
