Solvents?

Any chance someone in the southeast area has some solvent for fixing a few small cracks in a windscreen? Dichloromethane aka methylene chloride would be the best, but any good solvent intended for acrylic/lexan would work. I don't want to buy a bunch because it is fairly carcinogenic and I would hate to store it around the house.

Touché, it should read "you live in Houston and you're worried about carcinogens in a bottle?" Joking aside, I did find some stuff online at hobby lobby that seems like it would do the trick. It costs a few dollars more than I was hoping to spend, but if no one has any extra lying around I will go buy it.

Scooter trash, acetone does not weld well from my personal experience. It works ok, but DCM is the bees knees. I welded this lexan safety shield with it for senior design and that thing was near bulletproof, and the DCM doesn't discolor the plastic.

you may try a can of break parts cleaner

the "chlorinated" one.

They used to be dichloroethane...internet search makes it seem like all the brake parts cleaner is now "non chloronated"...

did find this

http://www.sprayon.com/products/chlo..._parts_cleaner

98% trichloroethane

hmm... could any of these be used to fix spider web cracks in Buell plastics? I have a couple in the translucent plastic, and honestly... I'd never thought about a chemical that might flow into and fill the crack.
