Talking Plastic Welder from PEPBOYS

hey guys, well I was at pepboys yesterday looking for some epoxy to fix a broken accent piece on my bike, I find this 2 part mix called plastic weld, so I'm like what the hell. take it home try it and al first I thought it wouldn't really work, but after about 15 min. I was like "no S#@t." and after an hour I started to sand and repaint it, good as new, so I start working on my side panel all thats left now is painting. so I'm thinking how stron could this stuff really be. so I have some left over scraps of plastic so I break one in half, use the stuff to put it back together and then flex it every which way to see if it will break apart, well it did break, but not where I glued it but about 2 inches away from it, so I found a new best friend, all for $3.99 a tube. with stuff like this out there I see no point in actually melting fairings back together. anyone else ever use this product.

if robert agrees it must be good I love this stuff, I've gone glue crazy, I'm even using it as a body filler, and its working much better then bondo ever did. my next test will be the metal filler I got to seal a hole in my exhuast.

Just be warned that once mixed it dries very fast. So make sure you have your plastics cleaned (and paint removed around the contact areas) and ready to go before you mix the two parts together.

Sounds like the ticket for the "oops" on my fairing.
