Headlights (Futata Safari-Buggy)

Front lights need repair

The headlights are in bad shape. Lots of cracks and after more than 25 years; the plastic is now very fragile. I need to repair the cracks and rebuild the damage parts at the same time make sure the plastic doesn’t crack in the future.

To fix the lights, I use two components polyester resin. Let it cure for about 20 mins and sand them to shape.

Next step is painting them yellow.

Repaired and repainted as yellow

… remind me to much about smiley so I decided to paint it white.
