    Good point. I'll keep that in mind for my next short one.

    You're welcome.
    I don't have a drill press, or I would have used it for my stabilizers. A drill press will be a great help for you.

    Thanks wabbit. I'll have to post pics of the finished stab from that video, as well as another stab I made for my sister.

    You can put rubber on the outside or inside for dampening. Another guy used rubber undercoat spray and then painted it.
    My long stab and one of the short ones has a piece of rubber hose on the inside over the front bolt.
