Default Boot Mold II

Well, started to get my act together for an M380/450 upper replacement boot. It will be just like the first one though scaled down appropriately The brand new sample Randy sent me a few years ago, though unused, is starting to crumble. Poor quality plastic is certainly the culprit for sure I hope to have samples ready for the Clearwater WOG rally in January but don't place too many bets yet, har!

The picture shows the stock upper boot on the left (black) with a lower 2 piece replacement boot (blue) on the right.

I will keep ya'll posted with updates...

I have two upper joints with good boots, so if you need another to use as a pattern, just let me know and I will remove and send to you. Will be glad to be test monkey for the new split boot as both of the ones on my coach need to be replaced.

Again, thanks for your effort on behalf of the M380/450 group.

Thanks all for the support!

As I stated in the first post, the new, unused boot I have would crumble to pieces if I were to give it a good squeeze. So sad
