Thanks, I’m going to try this. The smaller diameter hollow tubing gets pinched and can easily get “swallowed up” in the crack. Or once it’s become somewhat flattened from being perpetually compressed, it fits looser and can be blown out at prolonged highway speeds. I had that happen and when I stopped I noticed that it has mostly been blown out and was barely hanging on at one end. Almost lost it.Yep, the hollow core stuff will eventually get drawn down so far into the gap that it becomes ineffective. I've heard of some using the .25 solid core, buteven though it won't compress like the .27 hollow stuff, its probably still too thin to provide much protection. I'm on the .38 solid core since November now and I'm still very pleased with the results and quality of the material. It has not so much as cracked or discolored in all this time!
I’ll try the solid core. Plus I think it looks better.
