      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

braided wire

2 posts in this topic

Posted

Three questions:

1. does anyone know of a tutorial on how to install A/N compression fittings and braided wire?

2. which is better/easier to use protech or detail master?

3. how do you make the 90 degree fittings?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know of any tutorials, but what I do is just slide on the fitting and put a metal peg into the surface I'm going to attach the braided line to and put a drop of CA on the peg.

Both companies are outstanding. I go with whatever one is the cheapest.

For a 90 degree fitting, just use metal wire and bend it to the shape you want. There are also resin 90 degree bends available from Strada Sports (I believe).

I'm not a big fan of the metal braided line. I found a good source of nylon braided line that you can paint any color you want. Just make sure to use acrylic paints. It's what I used on my Mazda RX-7 race car. You can pick up the line at any fly tying shop (fishing). It's used for making loops in flies. It's also a lot cheaper than the metal line and comes in different diameters.
