So, lets build one!!! We will hack a damaged toy car, assemble some junk pieces and add green silicone rubber, courtesy of Instructables and Sugru!
Step 1: Testing SUGRU.
I had to know if SUGRU was that good, if it was a good choice for the project, how much SUGRU I could find in a sachet and how many sachets I could use. And find out if I am allergic to SUGRU (luckily, I'm not).
In the contest I found a great instructable that gave me some lights:
But, nothing like the empirical experience. So, in a non-related experiment, I repaired the broken band of my favorite watch. I used one black sachet. The superglue was only for keep togheter the pieces while Sugru cures (Before this experiment, I tried to repair the watchband with superglue only, and it was a bad idea).
The result? SUGRU IS AWESOME! And I think it's enviromental friendly because, if you make a good work, you don't have to thrown away your damaged plastic stuff. Just fix it and it will last for some more years. I made this experiment two weeks ago, and the watchband don't show rupture signs.
I has one suggestion: it will be good more Sugru colours. Yellow, pink and red would be great.
Well, let's go to the main project.
