I got mine from Repco but you can get it from anywhere. Have a look in my thread 'My new mesh grill' to see what it looks like.

Sikaflex is da bomb hey! I work at a marine mechanics shop and when fitting outboards its da strongest s**t we can find when fitting an oputboard to the back of a boat. Its also good for patching holes like when u accidently drill through the bottom of the hull ;)
