Plastic Repairs
« on: June 12, 2018, 11:45:53 AM »
 :think1  Hi all, this morning I had a slight mishap and one of my plastic mounting tags broke off the inside of the right hand fairing. Could someone shed some light on the best adhesive or best way to repair this successfully. Cheers

With the amount of plastic used in car bumpers these days, there are plenty of plastic welding businesses around.  A job like that would be very straight-forward for them.  There would be one not far from Young.
Johnny Whitehead has done some plastic surgery using a soldering iron.  A stress point like that would require some filler rod as well.

I guess so, but I don't know where.   My son used some on his bike a few years ago.

A bit of web-search turns up this in Victoria:

Looks like you buy it online, starting at $29.95.
