If it were me I would, 70 bucks is not a bad fix and it keeps the sled looking good. Plus you wont have to explain to everyone that you rolled your sled. Its all personal opinion though. If you keep it drill a small hole on each end to keep it from getting bigger and then run zip ties across to hold it together.
You could, if you want a temp. fix. You'll still see the crack though. Maybe when you know you have the money to spend, look for a used panel, if you can't find one, then go new. Fixing that one the right way is going to cost you approx. the same amount as a new one. The epoxy kit isn't cheap.
if it doesnt affect the way the sled runs or handles or anything like that just paint it black, paint both side pannels 5 dollars of spray paint would do it. But then again your sled is a lot nicer then mine really. I would just end up painting mine cuz its older.
yeah good call sometimes the zip tie line looks really good, it gives it an aggressive look if you do it right. Pictures of this would be great. Ethan thats the best part about having older sleds, you dont have to worry about chips and dings as much. But newer sleds are nice, I just hate having to worry about dings and stuff.
