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:D 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. :)

roberts right after you mix it up you have maybe 2-3 min before it starts hardeming. and the coment about the proof, were you being sarcastic, because if so I can always take pictures and mail them to you

Also will second that is good stuff. I've found it at walmart. It comes in a black to part tube. The clear stuff made by the same company is also good.

I had some stuff like that I tried using on my headlight housing from where my bolt bracket broke off. IT didnt hold for 5H!T. and it hardened BEFORE I even got it on the part and that was about 15-20 seconds and it got extremely hot after mixing it.


I think i might have had different stuff though

What is the actual Name of the stuff? Who makes it? I hear great things about some "plastic weld", but who makes it?
I'm not sure who makes it. The stuff i've used is called "plastic welder" and comes in a black colored tube with two seperate nossles for the different parts that need to be mixed together. I've found it at walmart with the epoxy's.
