  • Plastic welding fairings

    I had a low slide and broke the left side of my tail fairing, I've since found a a replacement piece but I need to plastic weld it to the right hand side... Does anyone know of somewhere I can get this done?

      You can also do it yourself with a soldering iron and a strip of old plastic or a cable tie for filler.

        What about glass and resin?

        Would roughing up the plastic until it is quite course and then reinforce/join for the rear of the panel?
        Sventek, being a predominantly lazy fuck can you please purchase some for me, bring me the stuff, create something I want after you think of it for me then clean my house, wash my car, dog, bike breathe for me.

          This is the strongest way to do it, unless it's a very small crack.

          Anything that's structural (mounting points or tabs) will have to be reinforced too, otherwise they can fatigue and crack off over time.

                Only issue with this is fiberglass doesn't flex. There is flexible 2 part products on the market that are great for fixing fairings if u know what your doing.

                      For something with that much strain on it might be better to replace it.
                      Failing that another option depending where it's broken drill a hole in each bit and put a piece of metal rod in it like a dowel pin then superglue

                        it just started a split thru the middle cause of the cheap thin plastic they use. I was going to get whomever to do a weave of bead on the back of it to reinforce it aswell. I might have a stab at it myself with the soldering iron and cable tie method. will a 20w electronics iron be sufficient tho?

                            The book " Plastic Fix " is brilliant and taught me plastic repair of all types very well. Most importantly identifying what type of plastic you have and matching the rod to it to get the correct weld. There are thousands of plastics, matching the rod is critical.

                              how old is that book?

                              these days with technology going the way it is

                              plastic welding is becoming like lead wiping, old technology

                              half the suggestions written around here on plastic welding remind me of a pair of old blokes sitting around discussing how too's
