  • Old "licorice" style guard rail

    Acquired this cheap. Anybody have some picts on how this stuff is installed? Think I figured out the black clips and rail, but not the red clips.

    The ends just slip on the end of the rail. I never use them because they always seem to point where they want to because of the curl of the rail. Probably some heat on the end of the rail to get it straight, and a drop of glue or double sided tape where the tip contacts the track might work. Seemed more trouble than it was worth to me.

      Definitely use a hair dryer to straighten out the track before installing. It took me awhile to do mine before I put it up and some of it still curls where it wants. Good score by the way. They should have never stopped using that or discontinuing the sales.

        Thanks for the advice Dave. Since you have some experience with this stuff. How far apart do you recommend spacing out the black mounting clips, before I spend the time on a wrestling match with the rail?

          I use 3 clips per 1/60 normal curve.

            Actually I could never find the clips for sale so I had to use the clips for the standard guardrail. Worked out ok though and never come off.

                Here is a photo of the so-called licorice rail installed. Not very nicely I might add! The end pieces point down but not attached in this photo. as previously stated the ends tend to curl.

                  Thanks for the pict... Maybe adding the ends with a drop of glue or double stick tape will finish it off.

                  Looks like you might need a Turkey Crossing sign on the curve.

                    Personally I think that is a good thing. I left mine curl at the ends because there is no chance a car will catch the end of the fencing. It will bounce off.

                        By the way, that silver metallic Rustoleum paint on mine has been on there for 5 yrs with no flaking or rubbing off.

                          Yeah... I like that. Must not be rubbing the rails enough. Go FASTER!

                            Did you just spray it straight on the liquorice guard rail?

                              Installed the licorice guard rail. Glue a track clip to the ends pieces to keep the ends from curling up. Slit the track clip into the track slot and cut of the end. Not too shabby.
