Seems like every year I buy a new nosepiece. Has anyone found a flue that will really repair those things? If I could stick a new lip to pop rivit the old one back on again I could save that money and !

A couple of years ago we fiberglassed one back together because my buddy had no cash for a new one, he still uses that same nose today. Eddie

If your looking for a glue that works, check out coolchem.com. I recently picked some up at a local trade show and I was amazed at how well this stuff works. It's a 2 part system. I was sticking metal to metal, rubber to rubber, metal to rubber, metal to plastic. There was no getting them apart after I glued them up. The guy glued wing nuts together in the demo and I bent the wings trying to take them apart. Definatle worth picking up!

We used to melt plastic coke bottles to fill the cracks in ours. Ugly but it held up.

try finding a plastic welder. i know alot are scrating their head but they are perfect for racers, not to mention all the things you can fix at home. i bought the air type for 42.00 at harbor freight. just make sure you dont buy the type that doesnt use air. all that is is a soldering gun
