Well, the old ones seemed to work well enough, but the p.o. didn't seem to ride thru/in water much. I may switch over to the gaiters and be done with it.

I thought of that doug but the brace has a tolerance fit and there would be no way to get the Skin in there without destroying it or having issues fitting the brace itself.

I think I'll take a crack at using the metal gaiter clamps (instead of zip-ties). If that fails, it''l be back to the o.e. gaiters. Thanks for the feedback.
