Masked up and scuffed the edges of the fibreglass tips.
Then painted with a brush some EP filler on - this was a bit of an experiement - but once the 2 pack settled down (about 20 mins after mixing) it worked really well. It will require rubbing back / smoothing anyway - we will see.
Then back to the baffles - this is the new plan / solution. The safety wire goes through a #4 stainless steel washer and then round fishing split ring and back trhough the washer. This provides a round surface for wire to bear against and the washer will hopefully prevent wear.
The installed version, the front was pulled up and then twisted to reduce the bulk of the remaining play.
