Side pads for EUC

Beginner's mistake!

I did not know/guess/check that 3m Dual Lock is not like Velcro, in the sense that there is no "hook" and "loop" or "female/male" sides... so 150cm is... 150cm.

Long story short, I have half of the stuff I planned to have, and due to the price... I'll first check if it works fair enough.

So, new "optimized" design:

Yupp, that looks also nice and should be enough to hold it firmly. When will you get the dual lock tape? I have still not recieved my pads,  I ordered them from aliexpress Poland, but they sent them from China, so I think I will have to wait a couple more days...

I got the Dual Lock already, that's when I realized it's "short". 

If I have time I'll install it today.

Done!

Most of the work was... slowly removing the glue from the shell :-)

Just two pics, soon out for a field test:

Looks good, is the velcro enough for a good grip? You have a picture of the placement with your foot, that would be interesting to see :) I recieved mine 2 days ago, but they were bent so I am using weights to straighten them out at the moment, will soon also apply mine.

Dual Lock is super solid, holds very very well the way I did it. 

Velcro will have the advantage that you can still ride without pads if you put the smooth side of it on the wheel like the guy above did... while Dual Lock would probably hurt your calves' skin :D

Wow that small removable pad is really smart so you could have some foot grip when jumping and move it to the side so you could close the pedals, very smart!

A little bit off topic, but do any of you know if the plastic on MSX can handle hot glue from a glue gun. I am planning on mounting somthing, but I don't want to damage the body.
