    For everyone who does not like to use lead tape, this is the solution for weight under the bumper!

    Montage Glue! Or assembly glue, or mounting glue.. Not sure what the translation is from Dutch. Anyway you'll be suprised how heavy this stuff is. I glue'd a grommet and put it back on the frame, without any problems and gaps I added 8 grams. I think more is easily doable. It is really easy to...
