Repairing broken fenders

Just a heads up, I'm currently in the process or repairing both fenders on my 86 trx350. Both fenders are riddled with cracks and missing plastic in some places. Ive been welding the cracks back together without filler rod using just a torch and shaped chisels (under the guidance of the senior body shop tech at my work). Once all cracks are welded we will prep any plastic in the vacinity of a crack with a wire wheel and kent auto panel prep. The scuffed areas will be filled with Kent Chem Weld 45 (used as a filler) and then sanded to shape. I'll post updates as work progresses and might even get a few pics up

On my first quad I did a lot of the plastic welding. My friend had the tool. For rods we used cut up pices of red honda fenders. It worked, it just was not very pretty. Sounds like you know what you are doing. Some before and after pics. would be cool.

Pics will be posted tomorow, progress is slow as I only get 45 minutes a day to work on it (my lunchour at work). So far I've just been working on the rear fender, All the cracks have been welded (mostly just to hold the pieces together while the chem weld dries) and the underside has had the epoxy applied. I used a fiberglass mesh tape where the holes where put masking tape on the outside over the holes so that the epoxy would take on roughly the shape I need. Like I said I'll take pics tomorow and post them. I also fabbed up some new footpegs as the ones that came on the bike were broken and welded with what looked like a hardsurfacing rod, and they had some sort of after market platform which were actually comfortable but made it almost impossible to shift or use the foot brake... I'll take pics of those tomorow as well.

All cracks on the outside of the plastic will be ground out so that the final coat of chem weld will be invisible after paint.

Looks like it's coming along great.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Nice work man! The gray area on the fenders is that filling in places where there was no plastic?
