When you cant find car parts - Polyester them!

in #cars11 months ago

I gave my car to a friend of mine and guess what? he hit a dog. Dog is dead. Bumber broke. Aircondition radiotor dead. And wiper water tank dead. Plus an aircondition pipe got broken too...

So! its a honda civic 2009 hybrid. They arent common here.. so its hard to find parts. Managed to find a used tube for 40€ and a new radiator for 140€. BUT bumper and water tank no. So i decided to go the diy way until i find something used at a good condition.

the best way to built things and create something thats broken (without a 3d printer 😁) is polyester.

Have a look. you can create bends,shapes, and slowly sclupture what the project needs.20200701_130021.jpg

Yeap it looks ugly. but it hardens within minutes. and is very strong. boats are made of polyester too.
Next it will need a putty filling... and sanding and putty and sanding... until its smooth.

And of course some painting.
