Rewrapping Wiley Super Jumps

MI3EventerMI3Eventer Posts: 21 Baller
I need to rewrap a set of Wiley super jumps. I already have the wraps, but was looking to see if anyone had any tips or tricks before trying. The internet is definitely lacking some videos on this!

    If anyone wants to make a video for youtube I'm sure it would get a ton (5-10) of hits! I'd try but there might be too much cursing to edit out.

    I've used the aforementioned method with the long screws and non-acorn nuts to rebuild a few Wileys. That is the way to go.

    @MI3Eventer if you want to hear cursing as you're fighting to draw the overlay into position you knock over your tray of hardware and all the acorn nuts scatter off the work bench and around the floor. Then being stainless they are poorly magnetic so you crawl around looking for the missing ones.

    Finally you give up and you dig an old binding out of a closet and pirate the hardware.

    A year later someone is coming over who has a small foot and you go looking for that old small wiley plate to mount on a ski and you realize it is missing half its acorn nuts.

    So I should add - order up a bunch of spare hardware if you use Wileys.

    Which reminds me.... I need some more nuts.

    +1 on returning them to Wileys. If you were in the store they'll rewrap them in less than an hour so there's a lot of black magic involved.

    Or Perfski if you’re in OTown. Lucky is also good at it. Doing it yourself ain’t fun in my book.
