Last year I routed out my skirt to fit the busted up A&A frame that I had at the time. It would have worked well on that frame but not on my current aluminum frame. So I took some leftover resin I had and mixed up a batch. It's the epoxy resin that was recommended to me from Mike in Blogland.
I covered the holes with clay the best I could and then poured the resin into the pourous cavity of the skirt. It quickly soaked in and did start leaking in a few spots. I thought for sure it would all leak out but it kind of sealed itself off after a short period and I kept pouring in a little bit at a time to top it off. Of course making sure it's all set up on something to catch the runoff because it can be a mess.
About 10 minutes into it, the mixture started popping and making strange noises. It heated up and even melted the clay in places. It was weird watching a little stream of boiling hot resin mixed with clay drizzle out the sides. At this point I was sure the entire skirt was going to melt down or distort but everything turned out beautiful. The resin hardened and dried clear which looked interesting. And the skirt is now back to it's original form only this time it's a lot more durable and solid than the material it was originally made of.
After inquiring on the board if anyone had a JAG center ankle, I decided I would have to make do with the heavy ankle I had. So the next step is to mount the center foot and get the outer feet finished.
