E-1 rear grip problem solved!

For those of you who have been looking for what seems to date to be a permanent solution to the problem of the rear grip coming adrift from their E-1's, (and maybe other bodies too!) I'm pretty certain I've solved it, by using Evo-Stik's 'Serious Glue'! I applied a thin coating of this glue to the metal, and then carefully pressed the grip material to this. The glue takes about 3 hours to cure and has completely set after 24 hours. I'm guessing the alloy that these bodies are made of, is the culprit. Just make sure you have completely removed any traces of any other glue you have tried on the metal, and off the back of the grip.

Re: E-1 rear grip problem solved!

A well timed piece of advice, the main grip has come away from my E1 recently!
