For some reason I do not find a US. distributor of Pyramid acc. ??

I went directly to their web site but no fender extender was listed for a 2020 model ??

Just finished installing a cheap eBay fender extender. Fits OK, and I used extra adhesive and a couple of low profile nylon screws to make sure it stays put.

Comes up as 2019 on. The 17 quid postage may put you off though.

DandyDoug, See this link:  Unfortunately, they appear to be out of the '20 extender.

I just ordered one for my '14.  It was listed on eBay, but it was also the last one they had.  :084: Covid Crap?

I went to their website and the part was listed as out of stock.
So I sent them an e mail asking when they thought they would have it again.
Got a quick reply that they should have it by the end of the week.
 I have ordered one.  :763:

Fender Extender came in the mail on Saturday.

I decided to remove the fender and do a proper job. Used the sticky two sided pieces , clamped it together and left it set.
Got back to the install today, I decided to use small black 4mm screws to make sure it is not likely to come off.
Yea I know, belt and braces , bla bla bla. ( just wait until you guys get this old )

Everything was going fine until I started to re mount the fender. A bit of fiddling one way and the other and I got it on.
Am having a bit of a problem aligning the 8mm bolt on the right side with the yellow reflector . The first bolt I took out, so its the last one to be fitted.

That bugger will not seat, I tried taking all the others loose and wiggled it so the last bolt lines up . No dice, I'm afraid now I may have stripped the internal thread boss. AARRGGHH !!!

Took the whole mess back off , checked to see if I had stripped a bolt.  :012:

Nope, just wasn't holding my mouth rite or using enough cuss words I guess. :110:

 Any way it's all back together and no left over pieces or parts. :082:
