    Yikes! I think you took the "battle damage" and weathering a little too far.

    Sorry, just trying to keep it light. That is a heartbreaker.

    I'd totally pitch in! I'll put in $10-15 towards a Bradleyfett or SgtFang if we can get some others to do the same.

    Guy's I never expected this kind of reaction, this has me speechless, TDH has been like my new family since I found these boards, and this just goes to show the type of brotherhood on TDH, I am very proud to be a part of the forums here.

    I just wouldn't feel right taking your money. I did purchase a Fiberglass kit tonight, and hope to tackle this thing, it's like a vendetta now. (By the time I am done messing with this pile of junk, I might have to take you up on your offer...)

    Thanks so much for the support my brothers!

    Bondo Heaven!!! I used some JB Weld on the mandible, but I bought some bondo/fiberglass and went to town over the big cracks!!! Man I love this stuff, but boy does it smell....Yow-Zer!!!

    Yeah, you probably noticed I accidently broke the range finder off. I am not having any luck with this sucker!

    The vinyl i am guessing became hardened and brittle over time.
    Sucks to see what happened.

    Good luck with the repairs. Looks good so far. If anything you can use it to experiment on before you tackle that fiberglass bucket.

    Studio-
    Did you and some bracing to the underside where the splits are?It is hard to type but when you brought the two sides together did you place a sheet of "something" to the underside to support the weight if the material added.
    Oh if you feel this is a hopless cause to try to repair and need help I would be happy to discuss this repair with you via personal message.Not to mention if you want to get rid of it.

    look at the bright side. You can now try Ideas on it that you probably wouldn't try on a decent bucket. I am doing the same thing at my new job! I work at a new Honda plant in my town and we are just starting up. All the cars we are building now are UNSELLABLE UNITS. They are going to get crashed up, and will never see the light of day. But we get to try new techniques and different products on them we wouldn't dare try on a car we were building for sale. So take this opportunity and use it to the fullest!

    I guess so, it wasn't in the best shape when I got it.
