    3M 2155 at Home Depot ~ $2
    Wrap drive and disc side stays. Full length on the drive side chain stay and 1/2 wrap on all other stays.

    Stay Wrap ~$10
    Wrap the drive side chain stay on top of the 2155 so the chain can glide over the stay. The 2155 really helps keep the Stay Wrap on and deadens the noise.

    2 layers of 2", 12mil helicopter tape from the end of the gusset to ~18" from the BB.

    Cytoe plate (you can get a hold of the guy on there...that's his user name), re-heated and formed, attached to the DT w/ 3M dual lock.

    There's prob about a full pound of armor on the frame

    There's also a layer of 3", 8mil helicopter tape on the Emerald's CTA, sealing in the Canfield sticker. All helicopter tape was applied wet.
    Naysayers never apologize. Critics go to their grave thinking everyone else is wrong.
