Trail fix for CV boots

2nd: motorcycle inertoob, cut a 8"-9" section of it and hose clamp or zip-tye it on. U would have to take the axle out of the car to do this, but I bet it would hold up for a while if done right;) Just thought I would share:drunk:

How tight/loose did you wrap it around the actual CV? I would think if it was tight the CV might grab it and chew it up! Sounds like it held up for you however.

I would think that rubber electrician's tape would work, too. Not the plastic kind, but the natural rubber type that's used to waterproof a connection. Usually comes with a paper backing that you peel off as you unwind what you need. With enough turns, the rubber layers will actually blend together into a single contiguous material with all the attributes of rubber (pliable, stretchable, etc.). Might be a good thing to have in your tool box. Then again, maybe it wouldn't work... 8-) Later, Rick
