If your LS6 is Experimental, I have a fender and external fairing that fits if it turns out that it isn't already in there.

The inner fender is part of LS-6 aft construction, even when skid is installed, based on the one I worked on. It would require the factory drawing to duplicate the mounting of the axle bolt.

And so how does it go when you need to remove the skid, for some reason?

I've never used 5200 but know boatbuilders don't like it for many applications because it is unpleasant to undo for repairs.


The glue on skid idea was always kinda dumb. But it seems *really* dumb to glue the thing on in some fashion that's going to require a sawzall and disk grinder to remove.

Contact cement works. The thicker, gap filling solvent based adhesives (the "goo" and "goop" products) work better, are more forgiving prep wise. These can be worried loose when needed, without destroying the skid.

It's not necessary to overthink this.

best,
Evan

Like a tuna .... fillet it off with a NEW razor blade, the ones used in utility knifes. Easy. Liquid vise grips, vise grips and epoxy, nothing more needed in this world.
