    Default Chassis end caps good/ bad?

    I've seen (ali express) plastic "bung hole" cap ends which made me wonder, useful / aesthetic ..or not?

    I'm quite keen to limit water ingress, but a steel tube with a bung in of that diameter can in theory get "wet" inside based on general seasonal conditions & environment, so a bottom seepage hole seems sensible compared to a total stopper solution (imho).

    What opinion has been formed over time on this, frippery or useful?
    Thanks

    Frippery, but unlikely to cause issues provided there is sufficient drainage. The tubes these caps fit into are the axle, not the chassis, and have very thick walls.

    Thanks, a quick poke with a dremel it will be then if I get some.

    I prefer open ends to the de-Dion tube , to allow free airflow
