Recommended Posts

Any advice as to how the Foam Block fits between the rear bulkhead and shock strut beam e.g. where does the adhesive side go.

Picture/s would be great.

Cheers
Mark

I guessed and stuck them to the strut cross member.

What does that do and isn't it just like a sponge at the back?

Wouldn't this just retain water?

This is the view I had before I started replacing the low pressure return fuel line.

The foam has gone very hard in places.

When I did the body repairs on mine I hacked it out, welded in new metal and then filled the gap with seam sealant.

It helps to seal the engine bay, it is a foam brick.

The original pads were a closed cell type of foam. They do eventually soak up oil but don't seem to hold water.

When you fit the strip, find the correct position and mark the area (dry wipe marker of similar).

Pull the first couple of inches of protective cover off both sides and have this in a position so you can pull.

Now reinstall the strip using your marks as a guide.

Once in position pull the cover off trying not to move the pad.
