Over the years i see a few diferent ways to repair broken plastic parts from thermoset, thermoplastics,etc but all of them lack from "Style" and they are ussually clumssy, tedius and dificult to deal with, the sistem i develop usses a single strand of "Safety wire" so is a continuos circuit with out any strands sticking out but also provides a "Close circuit benefit, so if any part breaks again, they whole thing does not fall apart...

let me see if i can explain it with my chessy Ingles..

Step 1: Findidng something to fix

the whole process start by breaking something first, at that sadlly i'm really good at, in this case is one of my motorcycle fairings after a big fall...
Hmm...<br>That was good, but it is better to take it all off first, use a soldering iron to fix it together by melting the plastic in the inside part, then put some resin on it, dry and you have a better and stronger plastic!
Prettty cool way to make it work AND have a Frankenstein effect! Just in time for Halloween... What model BMW is that?
This works great, I did the exact thing on an old Honda ATV over ten years ago when the "plastic weld" wouldn't hold a broken fender together (rough trails and all)
I think I did soething wrong and the first picture end up on the second slot<sub>,sorry about that, is my first time posting here...</sub><br/><br/>anyway the picture in green is another bike i fix for a friend and hopefully have better contrast so you gals and guys can see the results even better..<br/><br/>
Here is the Missing foto showing how the same piece of plastic was put togheter and made it ridlable again
sorry i did something wrong and the pictures are not exactlly in the proper sequence hopefully i can find a way to fix it..,
