Whats goin on...once again another small problem with my bimmer. How would I fix a cracked body kit. I have a 97 318, 4 door. There is a small crack on the passanger side, in front of the door, almost by the wheel well. Should I use bondo, or is there someother method that would make it look all nice and clean

Yes... go to the auto parts store.. or any body shop.. they should sell some type of bondo or body make up... that will seal it up... put it on there.. sand it down with some heavy to fine sand paper.. then pait it... use primer first of course....

Good Luck,

Les

Don't use bondo, what is the kit made of? Fiberglass or Polyurethane?

If its fiberglass, just get some glass matt and some resin. Repair it from the backside. Then get some fiberglass called kittyhair. Its chop matt mixed with a fiberglass paste thats very easy to form and sand.

If its polyurethane, an autobody supply shop will carry an industrail plastic glue that will seal the seam. Again do it from the backside then use the kittyhair on the outside.


Make sure you prep the area really well so everything bonds together good.
