Nose Variations


I had an interesting discovery when I purchased a replacement nose cone off Ebay for my Laurentian to replace the extremely brittle one on my car. The replacement was quite a bit more "substantial" than the one that came off it. Here's a photo of the back side of the original nose:

And here's the back of the replacement:

It is much thicker and has a more "rubbery" feel than my original. My original is almost plastic feeling. Needless to say, if you come across the more substantial one, grab it! I remember my dad's Strato Chief had the "rubbery" one. It took several bumps without cracking.
