topping off the striker

IMG_4935 Here’s how I added some padding to the top of the “striker” part of the hi-striker. I picked up a used tire from my local mechanic and managed to cut a couple of rectangular pieces out of the tread. After some trial and error I found the best way to cut through a tire with steel radials is with a sabre saw with a metal cutting blade. The shop stunk like burning rubber but it cut pretty quickly.

I used the nailgun with some trim nails to tack two layers onto the striker. It can probably use some trimming on the corners, but it will do the trick.
