knee pucks

so my suit has no pucks. i'm under the assumption that i simply need velcro sewed onto the knees in the right spot in order to slap on knee pucks for the track correct?

it's a 1 piece shift suit.

so where can I get this done and what's the approximate cost to have pucks added to leathers?

i'm on the west side of h-town near katy so the closer the better.

thanks.

you may want to get you leathers on and mark them where they are supposed to be if youre not taking them to someone who is familiar with what youre doing.
it would suck if they where stuck in front of your knee.......

I carry the knee sliders. You should be able to go to any leather shop/repair place and have the sew on a velcro (fuzzy side) to the leather. Shouldn't be too exspensive either. The pucks are $30.

that is where mine are....well not exactly in front, but pretty close. that's where i drag.

it's all a matter of personal preference where you wanna put the velcro. if you don't know where you drag knee....a good spot to position the velcro would be in the middle of - the front of your knee, and the side of your knee, and about 2-3 inches lower than the center of your knee. i'm just guessing, but you can just look at another off the rack suit and do it similar.

How about waiting till you drag a knee, then you'll know.
It's not like they hit the ground real hard and it won't come close to going thru your leathers for a while.
