    Don Post Helmet Crack

    I'm getting ready to tackle my kid's '96 Don Post, but it has a cracked under the left eye that needs to be fixed first. Any suggestions? I've found that a lot of glues will not stick to vinyl and want to do it right the first time.

    Thanks!

    Super glue works fine on vinyl, I have fixed several using it with great results. then use some two part stick epoxy putty from behind to strenghen it.
