Sorry, this is the first site I saw when I googled it:


I didn't read all the text.

Herman's kit, like the one I linked to, is the way to go if you want to
go tube conversion.

I believe you are thinking of a different conversion.  The "Blind
conversion is the one that Herman van den Akker designed and installed
on his
own TR250.  It only attaches to the original shock mount.

BTW, the original shock mount wasn't really designed for the load that
a tube
shock puts on it either.  I've heard many reports of it breaking.  So
reinforcement is probably a good idea.
