how do you guys repair a aftermarket intake lid("ls1 motorsports")?

it seems like nothing sticks to it, other than tape

does anyone know what these lids are made of?
would i have to somehow fiberglass over the cracks to fix the lid???

There is a product called plastic welder that will surely do it. Buy a good epoxy resin and that'll work. Check out the hardware store adhesive section. Paint it when your done and the adhesive cures!

Give JB Weld a try, that should do it!

Just where gloves when you do it, or you will have discolored hands for a week.

I like using fiberglass, to me it is a lot easier to use then anything else.

did you use sandpaper on the cracks to give it something to hold to. you might need to do that if you didn't.

You can pick a used one up for about $60 or $70 in the for sale section.

Yea, I'd use RTV--silicone. Or buy a new one.

I repaired several over the years with a product called quiksteel here is one that had a decent size crack and I repaired and used for thousands of miles
