REALLY flexible actually, you can fold it in half with ease and it easily unfolds back into its original shape. Seems like once the 16-21 year old ones on the start to get hard is when they start down the wrong path. I'd say flexibility is key, although something more rigid might hold up as well.

I've been on the lookout for any substitute material to use for the liners. My thought is that something flexible that comes in sheets could work. For example, start with a cutting of adequate width for the center of the liner, and then fit separate cuttings for the inner part of the well and for the out part of the well, and seal with silicone. Haven't found such material yet in typical consumer haunts, but I'd bet it exists...

More XR4Ti Bumper Spacers:

Definately worth having a look at these auctions, parts are selling for about 30-50% less
than what I would ask for them directly, so you could save yourself some $$.

I've had quite a few people ask for some parts to be listed next time with a "buy it now" price instead of the typical bidding auction.
So without further ado, here's some brand spankin' new XR4Ti AND Scorpio parts with fixed prices for immediate purchase.

This will probably be the last "New part of the week" post until after Carlisle (getting ready ourselves, making sure customer orders get shipped immediately, etc. etc.)
So figured we'd end on a high note and offer up some more rare NOS parts previously deemed as unobtainium.

Scorpio Fog Light:
