Peter Senn asked about re-covering the pads under the bonnet of his Silver Shadow - a task I have often added to my list of things to follow up. The material to be used needs to be fine and fireproof and is basically a PVC material well sprayed with a fire retardent. These things are well known to competant trimmers, the retardent is available from most hardware shops. Getting the pads off is straightforward, cleaning them is not easy but perseverance should help. If the guts of the pads has been destroyed, high density insulwool will do very nicely. The re-covering should cost with materials under $200 which compares favourably with $1600 new!!!
