How to repair plastic parts for cars and motorbikes.

Repairing a steering column cowling for a Subaru Impreza 1997.

The cowling was broken into 3 pieces which I glued together with super glue. The glue dried in just a few seconds and helped to keep the parts together for the next step.

I cleaned the parts with a silicon remover. On the inside of the cowling I used fibreglass and polyester in order to glue the parts together.

I made a "shallow V" on the outside, with a Dremel.

I filled the "shallow V"with fibreglass padding and sanded it with 240 grit sandpaper.

I sprayed it with plastic primer before I covered it with black plastic paint. I'm pretty happy with the result.


  1. Amazing! It really looks as new one. The black plastic painting fully covers the scratches very neatly.

    1. It is nice to get some feedback on my DIY projects.
