Broken glass

6 posts in this topic

The sunroof on my junky work car shattered over the weekend. It's still in place, but ready to collapse. Duct tape is holding it together for now wink.gif

Is there any kind of epoxy I can smear on it to bond all the cracks to keep it from blowing out? I really don't want to replace the sunroof as it will probably cost more than what the car is worth!!!!

Thanks.

CD -

Give that junkyard up around Erhard a call. I bet they'll have what you need.

Tom Minten at Battle Lake Auto Body may be able to help you with the expoxy question, or he may have a line on a replacement as well.

Dont bother with a fix! Get a new one at a junk yard. I tried the fix it route and they leak, especially when that bad. Probably cost more for instilation than the glass.

Couple thoughts....I assume it is safety gas, if so, doesn't leak because there is a thin plastic sheet between two glass plates, that is what is holding it together....there is a two part epoxy for bar tops(menards or home depot), would be pretty clear...potential problems being, the extra weight may colapse it, or the epoxy may react and disolve the platic sheet or you plexiglass. good luck, let us know.

The sunroof is all electric and custom fit, it's also a Subaru. I looked at it and it's going to take a pro to fix this one, trust me. Just installation will cost a pretty penny.

I know this is corny, but I'm thinking fiberglass resin repair mixed with hardner and custom cut a piece of plexiglass and glue it to the underside of the sunroof glass. Anything but put money into this beater!!

The glass is shattered, soft and fragile, but it doesn't leak a drop! I tested it.

    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.

    •   They're legal until they fall into the wrong hands.  But I haven't heard of many cases where doctors or patients have ended up in prison for distributing narcotics.  So far, the suggested remedy for the epidemic seems to be for the states to set up online information sites so the public can be "educated" about the dangers of using addictive drugs.     So, apparently, armored vehicles, swat teams, and prison sentences are the answer for illegal drugs, and education is the key for legal drugs,
