    The death of G-Mats 3 & 6!!!!!

    Post  GRAYMAN on Sat Mar 03, 2012 12:52 am

    Two of my mats bit the bullet today!

    G-Mat 6, my K-Mat was always likely given the material its made from so I'm not too surprised or upset.

    G-Mat 3 (my black and white mat), on the other hand, is devastating!



    I'd like to say that I ripped it open on a gnarly reef or some such but the truth is I caught it in some brambles walking back to the car. Sad I'm gonna look at a repair but I'm not too hopeful. The tear runs right along the seam on the rail. Sad

    b*ll*cks!!!

    G

    Don't write off G-mat 6 just yet!"My old man's a TV repairman,he's got this ultimate set of tools.I can fix this!" See film "Fast Times at Ridgemont High"...
    G-mat 3's demise's a real bummer though.Blame it on those National Trust rangers not cutting back the hawthorns enough.Useless twaats.

    Thanks Neil. Material is cut and marked for the replacement.

    Piskian good luck with that. If you pull this off with TV tools them Xu want s full rundown on how!

    I'd paint Eco along the seam and stick a repair patch on. See if it stops hissing.
