Re: Repairing body work
Sorry, but you are talking about two entirely different things. Welding involves the use of heat to melt materials together - this works well with metal. Plastic welding works, but not as good as chemical BONDING of the plastic. I've done both, and I also TIG and stick weld, and all I can say is, Plastex has saved a bunch of stuff that would have otherwise been unsable. Let those who have the cracked plastics decide which method to use. Personally, I hate it when people try to stick thier plastics back together with a soldering iron. If you haven't had any experience with it, your opinion matters little. Plastex is NOT an epoxy or a glue.
I'm with the government - I'm here to help.
