    Anyone know where to get a good material to line the bottom of my pedal board with so velcro will stick to it? For $8 Canadaiam i can 20 meters of velcro strips that will cover my board....would some sort of material be any cheaper/effective?

    Thanks
     
  2. Yes. ozite from any automotive place that can order it (it's the same stuff basically as rat fur on cabinets). about 7 bucks a yard. enough for a few boards, and you can get it in different colors.

    A little contact cement on the bottom and you're done.

    Do you mean this stuff?

    http://www.ozite.com/

    Is it basically carpet?

    That stuff looks like it would do the trick, but it seems rather expensive for the velcro compatible stuff. I think I will just go with the velco strips.

    Thanks!

    I think I want this, right?

    EDIT: Screw that, that's so expensive. I thought you said it was $7...?

    Actually looking at the prices more carefully it looks like it is $99 for 8 cases of the stuff. In that case it isnt that bad.

    I am still curious as to how well velcro sticks to it though. anyone know?
     
  7. Coulda sworn I saw it for that price on Froogle. Can't remember how I worded it, but simply typing in ozite isn't getting the same results. It appears I am incorrect.

    Go to time out and then you can finish your supper.
     
  9. What is wierd is it wasn't that long ago, I was making a board for "mnolansoc", and that is when I froogled it. this is really frustrating me, as I saw it in a bunch of colors from an auto supply place.

    no supper for me. except for the egg on my face, unless I can find it. :meh:

    Hmm, i'm check out that yahoo site. Thanks for bringing it up though Mon Rominee. I'll Froogle it and maybe i'll find it real cheap.

  12. Ooops, didn't see that Sean already found it, just above...stupid me. :smug: geez.

    Anyway Sean, have the "hook" part of velcro on the bottom of the pedals, and the Ozite is the "loop" part. works pretty good.
