I've check out the various advice from the forum, and it seems most have recommended the black ABS glue for making repairs to the various plastic parts. I've spent the last few days calling around to find the black ABS and can't find out who manufactures it and can't find a supplier that carries it. Home Depot, Rona, and any of the major hardware stores don't have a clue what I'm talking about. Finally found a body repair guy that said he didn't really know what I wanted, but he has stuff that might work, but it requires a specific gun and some sort of mesh.



Does anyone have the name of this stuff or the manufacturer, or a code number, and is there a specific gun I need? From what I'm reading here, no gun seems to be involved, but that's why I'm asking.



Any advice? :?

Black ABS is a Ace Hardware in the US.
Also I believe Lowes has it too.

Plumbing code in Canada dictates that all ABS cement be yellow. Supposedly so inspectors can quickly and easily tell if any joints have been missed.



But not so in the USA, so about any hardware store there will have the black stuff. I got mine at Ace in Calais as I was coming home last trip.

Thanks for that, but up here in Canuckland, we don't have Ace Hardware. That's my biggest problem.

I should have probably added that we don't have a Lowes here either. They seem to only be in certain areas up here.



This really sucks.:(

Well, that would explain why I can't find it.



Any idea if the yellow stuff would be the same? Or if they make yellow stuff that is a bond, rather than a glue?

3M also makes a problem plastic repair 2 part system. It is sandable and paintable.
Most good auto paint stores have or can get.

ABS Cement is for gluing black ABS pipe used in drains here under sinks, etc. You might check a hardware store there in the plumbing department.
Maybe the yellow is same mfg, different number. This is themfg and number in the U. S.

Black ABS Cement, Oatey #30999, ABS Cleaner, Oatey #30779

All black sewer/drain pipe in Canada is ABS. Buy a piece of pipe and cut it length wise then put it in the oven on a cookie sheet at 350 degrees. as it softens it will lay flat and you will have a sheet of ABS
