beautiful work ! nice tint !

Where's the soda?

the soda mod was invented by Neff
goal : to protect the side of a top from scratches
technique : all you have to do is drink the the soda , then shrink the plastic bottle around the top so that it covers the surface exposed to potential damage.

i really like the tip :
 the shape is perfect and it seems to be metal coated with delrin?


good day
jim

The tip is fixed, made of HDPE with a bolt going all the way through it. Delrin is too slick for bigger tops, IMO.

The soda bottle PET shell was first done by forum member bAd, I think I was the first one to paint the inside of the shell and trim it up on a lathe though.

Very glad that you have it sir Jack!
