Howdy...

My old Lefty is certainly showing its age. I'm currently wondering about this foam collar and if I should/can replace it. It is dry-rotting pretty badly and torn almost halfway up.



What is the purpose of this piece? Is it vital/necessary? If so, anyone know where I can find a replacement?

Thanks in advance...

Google: Lefty Bumper.
You be surprised how many shop sites will open…..
Your foam type was superseded a few times, so a few different ones will show, but they all do the same thing.

Good quality (3M Scotch, say) electrical tape, do a nice, neat smooth tight wrap from top to bottom, you'll never notice the change (unless you pick a fun color) and it'll work for many years to come.

Especially if you catch it now before it splits fully.

Taping it would trigger my ocd every time I see it… I have a NOS foam bumper in my spare parts bin, send me a pm, you can have it for free, you just have to pay for shipping.
