Well, I can fix a few things on the Durafly Mustang. But, HK definitely has issues. I can't finish it with out the spares I ordered in December.

I wonder how long it takes to fill a mold with plastic. And can You imagine being rich enough to not care of You sell anything? I just don't get it.

It makes Me sick to see such a great product go to waist. They should support it. But they aren't. Sad, It's far better than PZ!! And costs less.

Totally frustrated with this issue.....

A roll of Duck brand Standard weight package sealing tape from Wal-Mart is your friend.

Wrap a strip of that the length of the leading edge and it will prevent most of the dings you see there.

For rehinging, the attached shows how to do it. Again, you may want to wrap the edges with the tape first, then do the hinge taping. The cardboard spacer (cereal box thickness is perfect) makes for a narrow strip of exposed tape between the surfaces. When the tape on the top meets the tape on the bottom you have a perfect, full length, hinge that will last forever.
