Any of you perfectionist out there got a painless way to squeeze a tight fitting fender between the fender struts without scratches. I tried cereal box cardboard as it's thin enough, but it is just not cuttin it!:huh: Got to be a secret trick?
What I do on the softail is to put some black electrical tape on the inside of the struts. Just take the tape and stick it to your pants or shirt, the lint will make the tape come of easier after the fender is in place.
Tape on and in she went! It was a very tight fit and no matter how gently I pushed her in, the rubbing on the tape itself put some very fine scratching and scuff marks on the fender as it slid in. A bit of polishing compound later and It's a done deal!
