Can this be fixed?

This is on the front end of my mugen sideskirt. This is my second set....The first set was cracked worse than this.

Since its just plastic, melt it back together and sand it down to a smooth finish. Thats what i would do.

Thanks guys.....i'm gonna take it to the guy who is gonna paint it today and see what he says.....I figured it could be fixed since people with coupes have cut these same sideskirts to shorten them and they work fine. I'll have another update after today.....

Ok guys....I talked to my painter and he said it could be fixed..but he was busy so he sent me to someone else.....I then talked to the new guy and he was really cool and I showed him that and he said it was nothing. I think it's some sort of rubber welder or something like that he is fixing it with. I have a whole other set of sideskirts that are broken in the same way.....I'm gonna ask how much it would be to fix them so i could sell them....or if any of you coupe people want them because your gonna have to cut them to modify them anyways it's all good. Anyways, I'm gonna post this in the For Sale forum if anyone is interested in picking up some cheap sideskirts....

if you heat them, there is a chance of warpage. you cannot bondo that kind of plastic because the bondo will just slide right off. why are they broken anyway?

Don't worry I know it's not bondo.....the sideskirts came broken. I ordered them from Allbodykits.com and one came broken. I told the guy about it and 2 months later he sent me another set of broken sideskirts. So in other words, don't do business with allbodykits.com cause they send you broken stuff.

hahaha that's jacked up...

rough sanding the plastic from behind and using a fiberglass mesh reinforcement across the rear, sanding the front and fiberglass mixing the front would work. but you already got someone to take care of it for you so that's good.

These are made of ABS plastic, do you think fiberglass will stick to this? because if it does, I have some that I want to modify with fiberglass.

can't hurt to rough sand the back. try a 40-grit sandpaper to rough it up hard and then fiberglass sheets with resin. do it on the back so that way you know it'll support it well and won't look ugly. this will only work if you rough up the surface hard so the fiberglass will have a texture to bond to.

if it doesn't stick, then i don't know - i guess you'd have to take it to a plastic professional.

The guys that have fixed mine said they used a plastic welder to fix it and a putty to fill it in and smooth it out. I went by today to look at them and they looked good. I just can't wait until they are completely done. I would have had it today but there heater for the paint booth wouldn't heat up for some reason. So hopefully tomorrow i'll get them on or else i'm crackin skulls......:-)
