Epoxy, rivets and kitty hair. Good combo. That'* what I used to attach the sections of E39 fender to the front of my fenders.

Do you have an air powered long board? It would make knocking that kitty hair down a little easier.

No, I don't have one of those, the long board I have is a hand board. I have a air DA sander that will get me close, then it'* good old elbow grease.

Found them on Ebay, but now can't find them again. Some place out of Florida called ImportZX

Edit: Found them, but no WS6 scoop.
http://stores.ebay.com/ImportZX__W0QQ_fsubZ1719499

Edit again.
Found their web site. http://importzx.ho8.com/scoops.htm

Keep something in mind. This is the second scoop I ordered from them. The first I got was damaged. They said send it back and will ship me another. they never did ship it, and instead refunded me the cost of the scoop and I ended up eating the $40 shipping charge. Customer support was not good at all.
