Re: cracks on clio mk 2 wheel arches?

Lilly11a just to let you know, I've not long back had a txt from Paul his PC is playing up, therefore unfortunately I'm not sure how soon he will be able to reply to your post.

However you might well be able to pick up some interesting info on Youtube if you Google for
Plastic welding.

I'd ignore the guy using a soldering iron which IMO would turn out like rabbit poo.

On a car other than preparation the process is pretty easy "I've seen this process done" by not the brightest bulb in the box one of my Ex trainee's. I'd doubt very much if this would exceed your couple of hundred stated budget.

One thing more, check carefully if the car has had any serious accident damage, for I've never seen a wheel arch split like that, could be next to nothing, or more worrying major stress within the wing.
