Can anyone tell me if the mirrors on the LT are made of ABS? Mine has broken at the front spring location. I tried to repair it once with epoxy, but that didn't adhere all that well. If it is ABS, I'd rather try a solvent weld with some ABS stock, but I wasn't 100% certain it was ABS.

I drilled some small holes around the cracked area laced it with small diameter wire and used a good apoxy to build around and into the wire reinforcement

Ok Gary...I think you get the craftsman of the week award...
I'm just cheap, both my mirrors were were each broken at 2 spring mounts so I had nothing to lose other than a few hours during the winter evenings to attempt a repair
used a steel replacement epoxy

I have used a small cable tie in my broken mirror mount but dont really care for it, I like the wire idea better. Although now that I know it is ABS I might try to use a plastic welding rod and welder.
