I plastic welded my fairing using a 80 watt soldering iron and soda cap.i putting wire mesh behind it for support and strength. as you can see I was able to fill in the entire hole then I stand it to try to get it a smooth to the original surface.just was wondering is anybody ever tried this technique before and would it last?seems strong and able to flex with the fairing quite nicely.
Have t done this method I use a labs method liquid abs it’s a chemical reaction to weld abs type plastics Take some bits of the same type of abs and turn it into a liquid with methyl eythle keytone or some other solvent that will dissolve the bits Used ng only a wooden natural bristle paint brush artists type Brush the area to be repaired with straight men and the patch bit Now use the labs mixture to help join the bits and fill the cracks This is a very popular method in the rv world
if you like I could do a video on how I did it.given material list in the whole nine I'm not that great at doing videos though.but like I said I use just a regular soldering iron and soda cap lids add my filler. I do enjoy your videos. Find them quite informative and entertaining a very helpful my scooter is my favorite hobby
I have a friend that gave me a broken piece of fairing I was planning on doing the video how to plastic Weld. and I went through the whole process of sanding and you know priming and everything just remember I'm not a professiona. this is stuff I picked up just watching and reading.if you see anything I can improve on on the video please tell me I should have the video posted in a few days
Looks good. Thank you for making those videos for us. When I have tried this, I was definitely thinking things had to be melted way more than what you showed.
If you're still looking for a free video editor, check out Shotcut. The posting part you're doing fine with using YouTube. I edited your posts and put all 3 vids together in 1 post in order. Thanks again!
