I recently aquired a 5 inch crack in the front fender of my quad(crashed). I want to repair it, thus saving me the cost of a new fender.
Does anyone know of a good adhesive for repairing this type of plastic. Or any other way to bond it back together.
THE WAY WE DO IT IN THE CLUB. IS DRILL A SMALL HOLE ON EACH SIDE OF THE CRACK AND PUT A COLORED PLASTIC TIE IN IT,DO IT ALL THE WAY DOWN IT ABOUT HALF IN"
APART. IT WORKS GREAT.YOU CAN GET THE TIE'S THE COLOR OF YOUR ATV.
Check with your ATV dealer, or an auto parts shop. They now make repair material for just about any plastic part. If no luck with these suggestions, try a body shop, they may have a few trciks up their sleeve.
I work with plastics and also own a quad. The material used is polyethelene. It is an inert material that cannot be glued together. Depending on the manufacturing process of the fenders, you may be able to weld it. The mechanical fastening is probably the quickest and easiest way to go. Good luck!
