onwards the search for JB weld in Australia...
BTDT......Have never actually seen "JB Weld" as such here in the shops but have used an alternate product, called "Kneed-it" (I think)....(I'll get the details tomorrow)
It is sold in about a 130mm long length, x 20mm diameter. cost probably around the $10...(memory again...???)
It is a 2 part dry product, where the inner core is one product and the outer sheath the other.
You just slice off a "disc" section with a knife, as much as you need, then squeeze the "disc" into a pliable mass. It is now like plastercine.
Form the plastercine mass into the shape/strengthening section you want and leave to go hard in about 10 minutes. You can smooth the mass with a wet finger prior to it going off, whereby it goes rock hard after "x" number of hours.
I have done the mirrors on Beryl Beemer with this stuff, you can grind/shape off bits you don't want with a Dremel tool.
