Home Made Slider Install

Recommended Posts

I was a little concerned that the lower corners of the radiator look very vulnerable to damage in the event of even a low speed parking lot drop.  So I decided to make some sliders.  I chose black delrin for its ease of machining and relative toughness.  I bought some industrial grade bushings and fasteners and bolted it all in place yesterday.  Hopefully I never have to test these.  Just a good piece of mind to have them there.
Mounting hardware installed: Grade 10.9 bolt clamps the hard bits together.  The slider actually floats a little bit on the bushing.  An o-ring installed behind it keeps it snug.  I put a little never-seize on the bolt threads given its scewed into aluminum engine.
OEM engine bolts, next to new slider hardware.
