Re: Plastex Plastic Repair Kit

That's the first product of that kind I've seen. Sure looks like it would work well. Now the hardest part would be finding someone who could match the paint. But that would be 'the' issue on anyway you fixed it.

Re: Plastex Plastic Repair Kit

Its an oldish thread, but I've just used Plastex to repair my top-box hinge attachment point, and it was brilliant to work with. Had to rebuild a completely missing section of ABS that was about 1/2 inch sq or so.... put some tape underneath, spray the powder on and add the lquid, it dries really quick and you just keep building it up. Add some fibreglass cloth for added strength, it just soaks up the powder and liquid... great for small jobs.

Re: Plastex Plastic Repair Kit

Has anyone used this to repair the rear view mirror? The forward mounting bracket cracked. Tried repairing with an epoxy but that didn't hold.

Re: Plastex Plastic Repair Kit

Have a look at their video..... they show a lot of ways to use the material (shit video, but it gives you a good idea about its uses). I would think it could be used to repair most ABS parts, it really is quite simple to fix things with it. Not cheap, but its cheaper than buying new from the Bavarian Master Wallet thief.
