Default Plastic Welding

Well was taking off the front fascia the other day and managed to catch the little fog/turn signal light and break off one of the little threaded pegs on the fascia that hold the light in place. The thermoplastic olefin material the front fascia is made of is kind of difficult to work with. Not much sticks to the olefin even epoxy and jb weld. To fix this I went to harbor freight bought the $10 plastic welder and made the repair with my plastic welder. I was able to reinforce this area with plastic weld and some metal screen material included in the kit. Plastic welding may help you all build up material on the back of the fascia to screw stuff on (ie lower grill material) or help repair cracks in the fascia or body kits. I also used the dremel cut off tool to cut off the extra material at the bottom of the turn signal light. That piece won't catch on the front end again!
