What's the best way to fix this?...

ATV%20CRACK_zpsvjksq4mz.jpg

Best idea so far is to clean it all up, sand the bottom side real good and find a piece of durable plastic I can shape and form to the bottom, and sand it as well. Then hold it all together somehow and epoxy the formed plastic to the bottom side. After curing, drill holes on both sides of the crack and thread wire through like shoelaces for support, pull tight and tie off.

Seems like I read about some kind of goop you could use in this situation but I forget what it was called. I believe it would take the place of the epoxy.

Right now I need advice on what kind of plastic to use and how to source it, as well as what kind of epoxy.

I'm all ears.

You can buy a plastic mesh. It is for some kind of craft. Where u take the short pieces of yarn and make a picture. It is just a white plastic mesh and you can cut that to the size you want. The take a hear gun and slowly melt it into the ATV plastic. I have done it and it works great if you take ur time. If u melt it too quick, then it is just stuck to the surface and will fall off the next time u run. Too slow and you melt the plastic piece. But you will probably take 5-10 minutes per area. Also if u go too slow if you spot with the heat gun u can burn it.

Or drill a hole on each size and put a zip tie through them. Wire might work too

But that looks like a foot well. Why not just buy a new one? It would be like $20 of eBay for a used one.

      I recently read an article about restoring or at least improving the looks of faded and discolored plastic body parts. In the article it suggested using a 50/50 mixture of boiled linseed oil and paint thinner. You mix it up and apply it with a brush or rag to rub it in and remove the oxidation. I curious to find out if anyone has had experience with doing this and what was their short/long term results of doing so. I would hate to try it and find out that a few weeks/months down the road my plastic body parts self destruct.

      Hi there i was needing to ask a question. I may soon be getting a UTV of one sort or another and not sure what is good or better to avoid?  So far i hear great things about the Arctic Cat Prowler and Havoc, and many speak well of the Kawasaki Mule all but the 610?  
       
       So what are your thoughts and especially experiences?  What have you had and used in farm life and trail riding that has held up well or hasn't?

      I would like to hear who uses what to clean there ATV’S. 
      I’ve always been a fan of simple green and it’s always worked well but with this new property and the crazy black mud and clay that’s there  I have to say the simple green is not cutting it. 

      So from cleaning  right after a ride to cleaning them when you find one in a barn I would like to hear what everyone does and what your recommendations. 
      I’m looking to try something new.

      What is a good option for a 13 year old that is dying to get her very own atv to ride? Thanks in advance for your recommendations. I currently own a Polaris Sportsman 570 and have been happy with the Polaris sportsman line but have ruled out other brands.
