Shorten a Drag Tracks section...

model40fan Wednesday, 2/4/2015

I used a section of track to make a DT to HW adaptor... then made them much cheaper... the old ones are now being recycled...

 Connector removed, the  DT section with the gussets removed will tape onto a DT finish line to support a towel...

 The connector I removed will glue or screw under a DT section to shorten it to the desired length...

Hey Smitty,

I'll have to take pics of them...the way that I shortened...or lengthened...my track sections was to cut two sections in half and reglue them together either shorter or longer (and reenforced the joint with plastic). Like I said, I'll take pics!

  • thanks c10.. our readers and i like to see the pics — model40fan
  • I'll try to remember to take pics tonight :) — 72_Chevy_C10

Hey Smitty, here are the promised pics...

This is a 25" section next to a standard 20" section...

Here is the back of that piece....the white pieces are just some plastic scraps glued over the joint to reinforce it...
