A friend of mine from back in my Golf Course Equipment Manager days, Hector Velazquez, has done several short TurfNet TV videos on common tasks required to maintain a mountain of equipment on an ever shrinking budget.  His latest video shows how he repairs a plastic panel while saving his budget dollars for more critical issues.  There are several other videos that members may find interesting.

I've been wanting to try this but haven't yet. I'm working on a plastic dash box right not & this would have been the right project for it :(

Thanks for posting that site  !  I watched a few of his videos and added to my  favorites . It looks like he has the same plastic welded we have at work . We had it over a year , I used it to repair running boards on a 2008 F350 that had long cracks from hitting rocks . It came out so so but it's a work truck and the main thing no more sharp pieces to  get caught on. Another fellow repaired a plastic coolant tank for a metal band saw . They are very handy tools .

Once I got to the Rustang blog, i had to get outta there  :poke:  :poke:

 

I recently plastic welded the radiator on the wifes Jeep. I used a cheapo HB 180 watts gun and used nylon zip ties as my plastic. Saved me 150-200 for new radiator.
