    I found that the grommets used in my wifes hobby worked for mine too.:)

    What I did was to drill out the body hole slightly larger to fit the grommet and installed it on the body post holes. Works real good to help stop that annoying tear that happens at the body holes. Heres a few pictures.

    Got'em at Walmart.:cool2:

    I use the same method on my Leopard. You can also get them around camping areas to fix tarps.

    hehe i know what you mean. my wife does alot of "crap"booking too. she has actually gotten published in two major scrapbook magazines in the US. even tho we live in sweden :D
    also she works with importing the stuff to sweden from US, so luckely she can get "samples" for free.
