Plast aid review

Have to tell you guys about this stuff I found out about while reading Motorcycle Consumer. It is a 2 part adhesive/filler/whatever that can be used to fix fairings and alot more. I bought some and started working on a shattered turn signal which would have cost $60 but the plast aid with shipping was only $25 so with the potential of saving a few dollars I gave it a try. It's not an epoxy, but a powder and solvent that you mix together. It melts into the plastic and forms polymeric bonds and mechanical bonds so it really sticks. I ended up mixing in some black acrylic paint (normally dries a milky white) and it matched perfectly. I basically remolded the whole thing and did a little sanding. Like new and it was in pieces. I also fixed the plastic hood on my JD tractor. Didn't even clean or prep the surface and it's as strong as original. Look online at the youtube of what you can do with this stuff. Pretty amazing especially for plastic farings but there are alot of other uses.

I saw that review, too, and ordered some but haven't got it yet. Good to know you had good luck with it, and thanks for the tip about mixing in some paint for color.
