Are the wick holes on the ikarus v2 still 3mm?

haven't been able to find definitive answer to this query - however, i have closely observed as many pictures as i can find and attempted to compare the two different revisions.

they certainly do look to be the same.

i have the V.1 with upgrade kit which brings it into appearing like the V.2 - those parts are cross compatible with might also lend probability to the deck, and so wick holes, being the same too.

a 35mm piece of either 2mm for ease, or 2.5mm meticulously placed SS rope, should therefore do the trick ...

i would tend to use mesh in mine - 35mm height x 25 to 35mm wide, pre rolled.

Thank you for that info. I'll let you know how ss rope works out for me.
