    Default replacing rub rail

    Guys, I'm getting ready to replace the rub rail on my Nordic and I'm wondering if there are any tricks of the trade that will help me out. The back and the sides are pretty self explanitory but the front going around the forks has me scratching my head.

    the bends can be tough, I used a brass punch and a hammer to "massage" and "persuade" the stainless around the corners. make sure that u fill the any extra holes with silicone or something, especially around the back (water line), ask Craig about it. He has been there too.

    Yours was stainless? This that I have is aluminum, and I'm not 100% its for a boat. Might be for car trim molding. The price was right on it though. I'm thinking up there around the front of the sponsons is gonna be tough

    When I did the front of my pickle, I made a templet out of plywood so I could bend around the wood and not the boat. I used a rubber mallet to persuade where needed. Take your time, It wasn't as hard as I thought is was going to be.
