Underbody repairs

There are several gas lines that are run under the tariler body, and are clamped, But they will vibrate and cause wear.

I put the vinal tubing that you can buy at your local Hdwr store that is used to prevent water dripping on your house water lines. I just slip them one and clamp them with tye wraps.

The body underpanels crack and come loose. the answer is to buy some flashing material from a roofer . Cut to size and pop rivet it on.. BUT FIRST..>>get some washers that have rubber grommets on one side , and it will stop the washers from cutting through the panels.

You can also try these. They are rubber coated and different sizes.

This outfit also sells Olympic rivets and rivet tools.

If you balance the running gear, you don't need to anything to hold the under belly or gas lines in place.

They simply won't vibrate.
