    The story:
    I got a little zealous on a walkabout, and my deadbolt took a tumble the wrong way. The roll cage survived; however, the lexan body didn't fare so well.

    For the new body I made some braces out of spare lexan scraps.

    Pieces parts needed:
    1. Lexan
    2. tape
    3. Dremel or shaping tool
    4. Sand paper
    5. Paint

    Lessons learned: Tape 2 pieces of lexan together while shaping the brace, and they will mirror each other. You can take care of 2 or more pieces at the same time. This also helps with drilling multiple pieces at the same time.

    I will be doing the same concept to all corners, both on top and underneath. Only time will tell how long the fix will last. I will update photos after paint is done. I just threw this idea out there for someone else in the same predicament.

    Problems are simply solutions that you have not thought of yet.
