HERE'S AN UPDATE OF WHAT i'VE DONE SINCE THE INITIAL POST.


I went to Advanced Auto and picked up a tube of Plastic Weld. It's a binary compound that you mix. I fused the shells together with it by laying it in the joins with a Q-Tip.










And then I got two tubes of JB Weld Stick...also a binary compound but a soft solid. Second pic is what it will mend

You tear or cut a piece off and knead it to one color. Notice it's darker than the stick. YOU HAVE ABOUT 3 MINUTES TO GET IT TO WHERE YOU WANT IT because it starts to cure that fast...


and roll it into a cylinder-looking thing...


and squish it into the areas being joined. not only does this strengthen the plastic weld, it also acts as a filler for spaces you want to devoid of space.

Now the directions say that within 10 minutes it's cured that you can move it, 1 hour to put a slight load on it and 24 hours for absolute full cure and hardest set.

I'm going to wait the 24 hours and sand it smooth and see about painting it.

Thanks. I'll be sanding it in a few hours but it's pouring outside so painting is out for now....

MMMMMMMMMMmmmmm.....painted goodness..gotta touch up the black though, got some fingerprints in the paint when I thought it was dry enough (but wasn't)....

This is only a preliminary test for this particular paint scheme. I want to see how well it works out in our woods before I tighten up the paint job. If it doesn't work out, I'll be changing it completely so there was no need to go "all out" just yet...
