Default strength

what are u guys doing to make bodies stronger. in the past ive used shoe goo and dry wall tape where bodies rip or crack.

thinking of getting a pro line bug body just wonder how many times it can get bashed before its trash. thanks.

Ive fixed my broken 5ive t bodies with epoxy resin and a couple layer of 6- 10 oz fiberglass. It holds up extremly well and the epoxy sticks to the paint without melting the lexan. But you have to use EPOXY resin. Not polyester resin. The mekp you use to kick off polyester resin will eat the lexan and paint. This worked so good on my cracked bodie i dont see why it wouldnt work on a new one. I will post pics asap
