    Looking for plastic welder/fabricator

    I'm mounting a rear camera inside the screen on the SV, and have to make a flat plate fit on a curved surface. I'd have a go at bodgying soimething up myslf but I want it to look good and be secure, so I'm looking for someone that can plastic weld a mounting point for me. Does anyone know anyone?

    I was going to suggest you fit some mirrors.

    However each to their own. Affix your remote screen with a big blob of sikaflex marine. Unique and classy.

    What? It was a serious question in the first place? My apologies. Nothing seems more distracting than wanting to peer at a little screen when a pair of mirrors does a far better job.

    There is sarcasm hidden in there.

    I don't even look at my speedo.

    Serious answer just in case.

    You can do plastic welding with a soldering iron and some donor plastic. There are also packs/kits that you can buy from Fleabay, etc, that have different types of plastic to use in the process.
    If the part needs structural strength you can add something like a metal gauze to the process.

    Try a couple of sample pieces...have a go with some scrap plastic and see if you can do it...That's what I have done in the past, it works.

    You can also use fibreglass I'm in the process of fibre glassing a crack in my nose cowl and while I had it off I noticed the plastic weld that was holding the tab to mount the nose vent was loose so I used some 5 minute Araldite to hold it in place and then put a square of fibreglass over the tab onto the cowl

    Any fabricator or panelbeater, like Potato for example, would tell you that you will probably have to repaint the fairing as well after welding a bracket on the inside. But you probably knew that already and will call me names too...

    You could try Motorcycle, Panel and Paint in Osborne Park, but I would not call Simon names if you like work done...just a suggestion.

    Find someone local to you that has a 3d printer...use one of the freeware CAD programs and sketch up what you want..or pay someone to do the cad work...most of the expense is in the design work, printing it out should only be a couple of bucks

    Yeah I reckon Iíve been over complicating this. I reckon I can do the job with an angle grinder and hot plastic glue
