Iam at the point where its time to put the sled all back togather and be done with it! Just ride it!. But before i do i need to fix a 3 inch crack in the hood. Where can i buy a little kit to repair it? I just want to make sure it wont crack anymore! And i need arctic cat green spray paint for the A- arms in the skid frame. Where do i get that?

Perma Poxy Plastic Weld works great:

Use a square of fiber mesh on the underside of the hood over the crack, then apply the epoxy and let it cure. I've used it and it is some very strong stuff.

spray paint won't last on A arms.

I had a 3" crack on the left bottom corner of my sled. I used plastic repair from napa and it worked great. I think it was 12-13 bucks and smells rancid so you know it works. I have also had success with jb weld original flavor on another sled and it still holds strong to this day. So both will work.

I've been a bodyman for 24 years, I repair this stuff everyday. I used this to repair my shroud, it was in 3 diferent pieces. It's stonger than the smc itself. You need to but the caulk gun to use it though....

This product works too... Doesn't rquire the gun, I prefer the one above though.

I'd agree with this ^^ . Patch it with the epoxy catalyst adhesives that come in the plunger tubes for plastic/fiberglass. I only use these types now. No since in having a visible repair from the outside. Fill the crack on the outside and smooth it out and repaint over it.

Look million times better than the "Lazy boy" Frankenstein zip tie stitching.
