It's a familiar story - a simple accident in the driveway results in cracked and broken bodywork that costs thousands of dollars to replace - more, sometimes, than the vehicle may be worth. Few repair shops or Do-It-Yourselfers have been interested or had the wherewithal to attempt plastic repairs, leaving no options but part replacement on an otherwise perfectly serviceable machine. In fact, insurance rates on some motorcycles and snowmobiles have skyrocketed because of the high cost of replacing broken plastic.How To Repair Plastic Bodywork by Kurt Lammon solves this common dilemma with easy-to-follow directions applicable to any plastic repair - cars, motorcycles, trucks, ATV's, or snowmobiles. Lammon shows the reader how to assess the damage and determine whether it can be repaired, then provides step-by-step procedures for identifying the kind of plastic from which the part is made, and fixing everything form a simple scratch to a major break. Included is a comprehensive resources guide for tools and materials.
