ABS Plastic Repair - Loctite Epoxy Gel, Plastic Bonder

Postby Mooseman » Tue Apr 05, 2016 11:49 am



I have seen the different methods of repairing cracked and broken plastic parts on our Wings. I have been a big user of the ABS cement for making repairs and even using clay molds to pour my ABS slurry in to make parts.
Well when I bought my 96 Wing it had a few missing or broke parts. One being the missing tab on the back of the side cover. I just kept putting it off as I knew it would be a messy project.
Then I found Loctite Epoxy Gel, Plastic Bonder 20 min set time.

It was under $6 and said for ABS... I'll give it a try.
Works fabulous and doesn't run. Glue the part in place, let set.. and done..... :D

I'll have to give it a try, had a tab pop off a panel the other day.
If my gal ain't happy, I ain't happy. Thank God she loves bikes.

The stuff worked great. I cut the replacement tab to length using the other cover to measure off of. Inserted the tab into the rubber grommet and then put a little epoxy on the tab and some on the side cover. Kind of like buttering a brick before putting it in place. I then put the side cover on and let it set over night. As you can see it didn't run or make a big mess.... I did put clear packing tape around the rubber grommet to keep it from sticking where it shouldn't, just in case. But was a non issue.
If I had the old tab, I would put it in place in the grommet, butter the side cover and the tab. Then reinstall the side cover and let set. Makes for a perfect fit..
Good luck . Let us know how it turns out... :D
