I have a grill in need of some repair I would like to start on soon.
What type or brand of epoxy do you use?

Seen it in person, looks REALLY good :WOW:
The man has patience, lots of patience........
The epoxy I have used is sold at the parts store (and Wal Mart) called plastric weld. It is a two part epoxy you mix together. I may try my hand at plastic welding soon.:DOU:

A few years back my brother and I worked with plastic welding on my 67 grill. We also melted a wire mesh into the underside of the center where there was a problem area. After that the crack seemed to stabilize and did not reoccur. I did have to block sand that area as it warped slightly from the heat. Once painted the repair was undetectable.
Thanks for the tip on the epoxy, I hate to do things twice.
Not a problem. Take your time and it will come out nice.
Did you use any glue on the cracks before the epoxy or did you just utilize the epoxy?
