Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

I changed the rear end oil. Also started messing with the instrument cluster. All the blot holes were cracked. Pick up one from a junk yard awhile back but it wasn't any better. So I figured I try to fix it for free before I buy a good one. I broke some plastic off one. Then cut the cracks on the other one with a hot knife. Next I took a small butane touch and melted the cracks. At the same time I melted the plastic I got from the other cluster with a hot knife and pushed it in the cracks like puddy. Once it cooled i sanded it with 220 grit. It seems to be working pretty good. It's kinda ugly but what can I expect from a poor mans plastic welder. lol
