Would you use a metal bush and washers either side with the Delrin?

Never seen it used before by itself where 2 objects are tightened hard up against it.

Going on what I've found out so far there's no need, some types of Delrin are impregnated with PTFE and used as bearing bushes!

I think the nickel coatet 7075 T6 aluminium wheel spacer will cost the same like the stailless steel spacers!
So you think it will be lighter and harder than the stainless steel ones Stephan, and the same price? Sounds worth trying

How thick would the hard nickel layer be?

I've got a chunk of 2" round stock delrin that I was messing around with. Its really fun to turn on the lathe. Deep cuts and fast feeds are possible. Maybe I should make some spacers?

I made axle nubbins out of it.

If you are going to make spacers you'll need to know what grade it is as there are over 10 very different types!

Maybe 0,1mm. The hard nickel layer have ~ 56 HRC (Rockwell) hardness.
(diamond have 70 HRC and I think bearing steel have ~ 60 HRC or maybe a little bit less!)

Stephan.

Go for it, Stephan. I`m holding off getting some of youur spacers (as well as some other stuff) due to a medical issue, then a long distance trip. Hopefully when I return, towards the end of August, you will have already have some idea whether aluminium spacers are better than stainless ones.

yes i also have one there. i order the abs tray from bmw . and mounted a six cell one there. i doubt the nine would fit. mabey without tray. but i barely got the six cell in with only moving. regulator and brake fluid out the way. mines a second battery though. i have an oddessy in stock location.

I know that Jim took some pictures of the installation. I'll see if he can put them up here.
Thanks, Tim. I only have one..

Thats one well set up XC you've got there.
Any chance of more info on the low fender. Looked at your pictures but not enough detail to figure out how you attached to forks.
Is the fender itself off a X-Moto?
