Hello,

Does anyone know where you can get Bodyshell post strengtheners from?

My Blue Supra's front post has a crack in it from where the screw has gone in.
(taking the car apart too often no doubt).

I think they just push over the existing post and hold it together.

Any ideas?

I think someone mentioned Ken had some?

Many thanks,

Rob

Just use some Styrene Tube cut to length. Evergreen make a good selection that can be picked up from ebay or most model shops.
Google "Evergreen Styrene Tubing"

Hello, Thanks for the info guys. I might try getting some of this "Evergreen Styrene Tubing"
as it seems to be the stuff other people use.

Cheers for the offer Dave, I think the tubing needs to be quite rigid, not soft.
Not sure what your tubing is like?

Soft tubing isn't a bad thing as it will be able to stretch over the splitting post and hold quite firm and snug. I've used aluminium tubing on a couple of split Ninco mounting posts.
