OK links are in for the video. It is about 20 minutes long with an option to stream or download. They are the first 2 links at the bottom of my post.

Very interesting product line, I'm interested also.
God only knows we all need plastic repairs sometime!

Has anyone tried the Devcon Plastic Welder?
The stuff that comes in a two part tube like epoxy.
I have had some good luck with that stuff and it's relatively cheep.

I've used that 2 part epoxy that comes in the squeeze plastic seringe (spelling?) It sealed and bonded SUPER hard, and allowed itself to be sanded smooth and filled both cracks and holes.

Yes, it works well on the ABS Kat plastics, just be sure to clean the joint with acetone before you use it.

Great read, especially since I have a hole in my left fairing from the original owner and a few cracks. I'm not sure how that will work on the plastic around the mirrors (completely broken away), but it looks like something I can do for the rest.

Did anything come about with the plastic weld guns being donated?
