    Not easy to rivet nut as it's now just a plastic tube.

    Could fill and redrill but that's a bodge too far....may as well buy a new cover. Internal door latch cover on Case 5150 door - probably not silly money to replace...but just seems a waste to throw away something that looks fine but doesn't attach properly.

    Will find out a price on Monday.
     

  2. Oh hey hey hey

    Thanks for the heads up on that. It sounds ideal stuff for holding curtain poles in place ( i.e. Rawl plugs pulling out )

    Now I remember real Rawlplugs, the fiberous ones, they never pulled out, specially when fitted into a hole "drilled" the old way with a hammer struck Rawlplug.
    Used to have biceps, right arm only,(and no sniggering down the back there!) like Popeye, I did, from that particular exercise and sawing gritty dry hawthorn with a knackered rusty Bowsaw .

    Hard plastic (tractor fascia) is a pain to repair. Haven't tried yet but this video looks interesting:

    just do a 3D scan of part, fix the worn part, convert to G-code and print it out on the 3D printer

    Its not the future, its already reality, Local school has pupil with prostetic hand, the school has 3d printer and prints a new functional hand each time she outgrows the current one

    Priced up the new part - £60.24 + VAT. Making me think about trying out a DIY repair first.

    @Cowabunga would Tiger Seal be any use or not on this please?

    Doubt it. I have no clue about glue. Prefer Tequila to Gorilla.

    Thanks @Dry Rot very interesting, using the see through masking tape .............
    We would "chance" a small bit of Isopon P40 (chopped fiber-glass) for that repair, drilling and heavily scoring the surfaces as in the video. It just dries a bit brittle, so no movement in it............
    That 3M stuff will be expensive, especially for a one-off fix ...............

    Clear mastik for the curtain rails ..............

    Gorilla glue is only for use on certain plastics,I did glue the tray in the back of my maxxum with it,it sort of worked but looks a bit rough (possibly used to much).

    Decided to risk the Tiger Seal as I had some on the place and short of spending £60 I had nothing else to try. Read up about it again and it claimed to do plastic, metal, etc.

    Put a bead on the existing surface. Placed the washer on top, and covered it in more tiger seal so it was no longer visible bar the hole in the middle.

    Three hours later, it seemed reasonably stiff. Reassembled and for now it's as good as new!
