Cross-post for those on the fence about getting the aluminum CVD collars. Wise investment I would say.

I used velcro. Fits perfectly.

Just a heads up, in europe atleast, many are using reinforcements on the front bulkhead to prevent it from snaping. Myself have broken a couple but now its in the past, never broken again ever since i got an aluminium brace that captures all 6 screws from the front of the bulkhead.

These are rare to find, got mine here: http://www.warny.pt/store/xray-xb4-bulkhead-warny i think they will ship to USA also.

PREVENTING THIS:

That is a case of poor maintenance no problem with the plastic collar or design, dry Cvs will do that. I have had my car since the first shipment came to the U.S. and have yet to have a problem.

I suspect there's poor maintenance involved with that failure.

2nd day running it. Used solid film lubricant to avoid collecting dirt in the CVD's. Guess that didn't work. Regardless, it's still a preventable failure with aluminum collars. Just giving you guys another data point.

Aluminum CVD caps and Durango dust boots. I lube mine with Tamiya anti-sieze grease, which is super sticky/slick - no more worries.
