footplate grip tape.

Recommended Posts

For those wondering what to use and on some models - how to cut the holes out.

it's called grip tape and is used on skateboards - so easy to come by on that auction site.

 

Cut to shape with old scissors or a stanley knife.

if you need to cut holes, then mark them from the underside in pencil. I just traced round them on a flat surface after marking 1.5" in from the edge.

I then made punch from a piece of chrome pipe - turning the edge sharp on the lathe, and then with a hammer on a piece of rubber mat they were cut through.

 

and voila... Bendy has grippy footplates :D
