bump


#3

you’d be better off just buying flowable.


#4

for a duncan mosquito?

No, don’t use silicone in that. The silicone will just rip out quickly.

As for your question, I really don’t know. I would say just buy the silicone stickers from yoyoexpert. They last pretty long and they play pretty well. And they are not too expensive.

Here’s the link to them:

I’ve seen how they made them but making the cuts seems quite tricky…especially to fit in a recess (like the FH). I’ve also heard of using bathtub treads (seems more durable than the silicone), and have wondered about using bike inner tube material (that I am about to experiment with once and if I ever happen to need to replace my bike tube).

oh, yeah, with a mosquito you need pads. sorry

Yes.
(answered for completeness. Congrats on making your new stickers. Maybe you could make a post to describe what you did.)

Circle punches work wonders.
