Fixing Fender?

Recommended Posts

 

I've dealt with partial cracks by "stitching" across it with small zip ties. Drill a small hole at end of crack to stop it from spreading further. Then drill series of holes on both sides of the crack spaced about 1/4" away from the crack, and about 1/2" from each other.

Here is how I fixed my rear fender which I broke completely in half. I used a hacksaw blade about 16" long as a "backbone" underneath the fender, and riveted it in about 8 equally spaced spots. I also used 2 short segments of hacksaw blade (about 4" long) mounted underneath the fender, but running along the side edges. It has been holding up well so far. The hacksaw blade is made of flexible "springy" steel, so it bends together with the fender. As a finishing touch I added a strip of red duct tape to cover the blade. You still see the rivet heads on top of the fender, but they just add a little special "character".
