a couple of new farkles put on today

So I threw on a few new parts I just got in. A few left To put on in next day or so. I really like the fenda extenda and it was only a few bucks more than the black plastic. I may end up throwing some screws through it but we will see. That 3M tape is pretty strong.

Not sure how to rotate the pictures or even why they are sideways. sorry

I didn't trust the tape, and didn't want any screws that close to the tire. I wound up using a doubletube type plastic cement which has held up excellently.

Well I could have made some epoxy up and done that as my bike is in work where I make custom epoxies, but I figured the tape would be fine. I have used it to hold parts on before and never had a problem. Car manufacturers use it all the time, and it works so we will see.

I don't want screws anywhere close to my tire.. I used Gorilla Glue Epoxy on mine and it stays put.

I was thinking more along the lines of small nuts and bolts, but after checking the clearances it's not really a good idea. I may squirt some epoxy in the voids while it is all clean. It couldn't hurt I guess.

I've had 3M tape only on my FE for 2.5 years/20k+ miles without issue.

Outdoor 3M tape is fine.

It has held my gopro on my helmet at 167mph.

Rivets work great, too. I don't trust the tape, so I added two rivets and colored them black with a Sharpie. No clearance issues.

Used 3 finished nut /bolts in a triangle pattern. Smooth bolt toward the tire, finished nut on the top side. Really like the military / humvee look.
