Removable winglets are one step closer. <p>This time I used an industrial strength veclro and an unsightly (but hidden) brace. The Velcro adheres to the plastic bumper via its own adhesive. I've driven it for two days and removed and reinstalled the winglets a couple of times to test it, and so far everything is holding together. The velcro attached to the bumper isn't coming off (yet), nor is the velcro that's attached to the inside of the winglet. I've pulled a couple of test patches of the velcro off the bumper without losing any paint (so far). I'm guessing if the adhesive stays on the bumper for a while, it might pull some paint when removed.<p>My plan is leave the adhesive on, even when I take off the winglets to aid spousal driving. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"><p> <IMG SRC="http://i931.photobucket.com/albums/ad152/rexberry/carpix2001-1.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i931.photobucket.com/albums/ad152/rexberry/carpix2002.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i931.photobucket.com/albums/ad152/rexberry/carpix2003.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i931.photobucket.com/albums/ad152/rexberry/carpix2004.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i931.photobucket.com/albums/ad152/rexberry/carpix2005.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i931.photobucket.com/albums/ad152/rexberry/carpix2006.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i931.photobucket.com/albums/ad152/rexberry/carpix2007.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: (m3nt0s)

Day three and still holding, even after a spousal drive. When I reminded her (again) to approach the driveway at an angle, she did- at 90 degrees! Scraaaaaaaape, but nothing disloged. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Her response to the "the look" I gave her was to state "Why would anyone make a car you can't drive into a driveway???" At that point I only could only laugh, because she's right. The good news is everything held together. Fingers crossed.
