Wheel Arch Liner - cheap DIY repair

Postby in10sive » Tue Apr 07, 2015 6:49 pm

Hi

I recently replaced my wheel arch liner because my stock one was damaged - unfortunately I manage to damage my new one as-well because the HID ballast was to close to my liner causing it to melt - I have relocated the ballast now and all is fine.

I did not want to spend money again buying a new one and did the following repair which I think looks ok and does the job:

Use an old bucket or buy new one, they are +- R15:

Next cut out a piece of plastic from the bucket bigger than the damaged area on the liner:

I then applied epoxy glue on the outer edges of the cut out bucket part and glued it over the damage area. After about 15 minutes curing time I went over the "bucket" plastic edges with black car silicon just to seal everything:

Very creative dude! Well done!

I think I will use that idea to also re-inforce the splash tray around my filter :)
