Re: K1200LT By Mattel?
Yep, those are the cracks I have by the mirrors along with all the others I mentioned. It seems to just be the black plastic that is cracking. I know it is ABS and have ben using ABS plumbing cement to fix them. I'm wondering if since it isn't painted if there is no UV protection there and it is just degrading from that.
I guess if I can find a replacement I'll spray some clearcoat on it and see if that helps.
I notice yours are painted though.. odd, mine is just raw ABS, no paint
First it was the wire sheathing disintegrating and now the actual body plastics. My 35 year old American made car doesn't have these kinds of problems and back then American cars weren't known for reliability
