Q160 Double sided bumper question change from 2021

Post by Robot »

Q160: R405 says that "narrow areas of underlying fabric exposed at seams, CORNERS, or folds" are allowed. Does this compare to R21 in 2021 that was accepted that the corners of the bumpers could stay a different colors so that we could easily do double sided bumpers. IE can we change the supported parts of the bumper to alliance colors but leave the corners a neutral color?
A:
No, allowing the entire corner to remain a neutral color was a change made for 2021 only. The entire corner of a BUMPER would not be a "narrow area" permitted per !R405.
