Default ABS Plastic Repair.. help

i have looked through the forum to find what people did with broken fairing tabs they had. i have seen in a few different places that an "ABS Plastic Repair Kit" has been used.
Any idea where i could find that or will i just need to get a sheet of ABS Plastic and do it myself with a soldering iron?

Use Bumper Repair Epoxy, 2 part. you have to mix it. as long as you get your mix right it will be just like new.

Go to walmart or something and get (Bondo) Fiberglass repair kit. It comes with 1 can of fiberglass resin, a tube of hardener,fiberglass cloth,plastic spreader,mixing tray, and a mixing stick and just follow the directions. The hardest part is probably knowing how much hardener to put since you dont want the resin to dry up on you while your working.

dont use fibreglass on your mounting tabs, its messy, and youll never get the cloth to form or hold right, the parts are just too small. using the epoxy is just like glue, once it sets, it wont break
