top fix

I used topfix last year to repair a side panel lug which had snapped clean off .The lug is still in place and i would recommend their products to anyone.Check out first edition of practical superbikes there is afeature on using the product to make a fairing lug.It helps if you have the closest shape possible to the original lug as the home made one may not locate successfully .The topmix goes off very quickly so make sure you have the mould for the lug in the correct position.I will post full instructions if you wish.

top mix

I used a piece of thin cardboard rolled in a tube the exact dimensions of the lug you are trying to replace,then i taped it in place over the broken lug .Dont forget to rub down panel prior to repairing.I then applied the the top mix into the preformed tube and waited for 10minutes before shaping the hardened product with a dremmel to as near the original as possible.

not to worry,just go for it i had to do mine twice to get it 100%.Make sure you get the angle of the mould to match the original angle of the lug.Good luck.
