I'm planning to build a tank one of these days, and I
had an interesting idea for tracks. Use aluminum or
wood to make the track pads, and rivet them to bicycle
chains, as several members have done. But here is my
idea: before assembling the tracks, coat the pads with
Plast-Dip or Tool Dip. It's that goop you use to give
tool handles a rubber/plastic grip. It comes in a
variety of colors, but I assume black would be best.
The stuff comes in a can for dipping or brushing, and
a spray can for spraying it on. It seems like it would
look pretty good, make the pads more durable, and
perhaps improve traction. Does this sound like it
would work?
