The GG glue expands to app 1/4 inch thick and just adds a couple of grams to each pant. Haven't cracked a pant since. I also use 2mm blind nuts and bolts vs. the screws on the landing gear. Other guys at my field have used the meshed tape and epoxy they are much more durable than stock but they still crack a bit. Gorrill Glue over the mesh holds yet is flexible.Done this on my 51 -70 and 89 Slicks. You won't be dissapointed.
Great idea! I will try that! I will add a block on the outside for the axle to fit in also. Wonderful ideas guys!
