Hey all


whats the easiest way to repair a crack in a Fairmont front bar. Fibreglassing behind the crack and fill with bog, or simple as aralditing the bastard together?

cheers

Depending on where the crack is you might even be better off getting a new bar. If its closer to the top middle of the bar its in a high stress area so it will re occur as soon as its driven on the road again. If its some where lower and away from the high stress area's you should be fine.

Mines screwed for this reason so I'm just going to replace it with a Venom bar instead.

Hmmmm I asked a panal work shop if it would be ok but he explained that it would crack. I didn't ask if that was plastic welded or not. I thought the same thing as you...
