Default How would you repair this door panel?

Vehicle is a 93 explorer. The top portion of the door panel is busted and cracked away from the rest. Any ideas on how to fix it? I did try a plastic welder but just couldn't get the hang of using it.

you could use a soldering iron to melt the hidden side of the crack.

one main melt in the crack, then melt 'stitches' across the crack.

[it appears someone already tried to]


fiberglass resin can work also. make sure to scuff the shiny surfaces so the resin has something to stick to.

my $51.29 craftsman soldering gun is better than a plastic welder.
Craftsman Professional Dual Heat Soldering Gun - Tools - Welding Equipment - Soldering Tools & Accessories
note: MaC Tools uses/sells the exact same soldering gun under their name.


Radioshack has decent soldering guns for $30ish also. {decent meaning they work well but don't last long}

Ca glue.wouldn't hold under the force opening and closing( I don't think)

But.you can ca glue.it straight and true then.fiberglass is your.best bet if you can't melt.it back together
