If I'm not allowed to post this link someone please let me know and I will remove it.

you would need to dril and tap for eye covers with a 4-40 tap. i just installed them on my pilot spimmy and they fit nicely. also you would need to put something over the detent hole and cut a slit in it so only the top of the detent can fit through.

Yeah I know I'd have to drill and tap a screw hole. What do you mean I'd have to put something over the detent hole?

the kila detents will just fall out because the spyder detent hole is so large. you need to put like a thin peice from a sheet of metal or something over the detent hole. then you gotta cut a thin slot in the metal so only the top thin part of the detent will go through. youll understand if you buy them.


if your doing this for the detents and not the eyes you can buy kila spyder detents.

Ok I think I understand. No I'm doing it for the eyes and I figured this was the easiest way to incorporate(sp?) the detent into the cover. If you wouldn't mind, is there any way you could take a picture of it?
