For that price, seems like a no brainer to have a pro take car of it.

Just FYI for anyone who doesn't have a pro locally, but Harbor Freight sells plastic welders.
http://www.harborfreight.com/catalog...plastic+welder

As always, their tools are hit and miss so YMMV.

This is an old thread, but I'm headed to Phillips Plastics with this in the morning. Will let y'all know how it goes.

I have one I bought from them .. Its not that easy to use

I tried to repair a sport bike fairing and the welder made it worse , Blow holes in the part , I did get a shortened seat pan welded together with it .

Quoted $75 for the work as Phillip estimated it at about an hour. He cut the filler material from the scrap seat pans. (I have some left over if anyone else is inclined to do this.)

I'm very happy with the reinforcing as the pan is very stiff and strong over the weld. It's off to Terry Adcox now.

Hey, I'm glad they were able to help you out. That second weld looks a whole lot better than the first one! It kind of looks like a pop corn ceiling! ;-)
