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.

Call a bone yard. You might be surprised how cheap a replacemnet is.

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.

    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one.
