Plastic fix

You need a plastic welder. Its a gun, similar to a soldering iron and use use plastic sticks, similar to welding rod.

What do you need welded?

We do some stuff here at the shop and if it's real big I have someone I can send you to.

I would stay away from the plastic welding.

My painter has a type of 3m epoxy they use to repair the bumper covers etc on cars and its made specifically for abs plastic so it works beautifully on bodywork.

What did you break Mike?

Just ask Jose next Sat if your going to be able to make it in.

Small piece guys... dind't break anything. :-) Something I noticed last time I was in, but didn't think about it until I was messing with some other stuff today.
On the fairing, inside where the turn signal mounts.. the lip seperated from the fairing. Signal works fine, just an...esthetics thing that popped into my head I wanted to ask about.

thanks for the replies

Show Jose next time he will probably do it for free if we pull it off for him. You working today?

How about a nice ride?

Yep, at work. Bastages didn't shut down...though we're probably running at 1/4 staff... and the volume of emails/calls is slow/low.


Rode in yesterday... last night, I was instructed by the family Matriach, aka 'She who SHALL be obeyed' (My grandmother) that I would be taking the truck in to work today and not riding the motorycle if the office was open.
