Don't mind at all. Got it for $21K. All the damage is superficial, the chassis and running gear are perfect, and it's got a clear title. Other than the smashed driver's door, the rest of the body really isn't as bad as it seemed at first glance. If I had to pay someone to fix everything for me, it would probably be cheaper to buy a complete car. Since I'm doing all the work myself, I should come out ahead. I'm about a month behind on my updates, as it sits now as a completely usable car with some minor body damage, with shipping, tax, title, and license fees thrown in, I've got around $24K into it.Nice work OP. I normally never ask because it's none of my business but I'm curious given the shape it was in when you got it, how much did you pick this car up for (if you don't mind me asking)?
ABS glue is good for gluing things back together if you have all the pieces, but I didn't and needed a filler too. The molded in nuts on the back side of the stanchion were missing. By using melted Legos, once the acetone evaporates I'm left with basically a solid block of ABS. Because the acetone melts the ABS, it's essentially welding the plastic back together instead of relying on a chemical bond. It works as a filler too, so I'll be able to sand the cracks down and be left with solid ABS. When I repaint the inner cover I won't have to ever worry about the bond failing.Like the progress. So, why did you melt Legos in acetone to make ABS glue instead of just buying ABS glue at the hardware store?
