    Hi there, Can anyone give me any advice on the best way to fix a cracked wing? It's only a small crack, about 3cm long, but it goes all the way through the thickness of the wing. It's on the wheel arch, and I reckon I could get in behind it if needed to glue it or something. This is the first...
