So recently I moved out and my boot hinge decided to break. The hinge is plastic with a metal nut encased in the plastic for the bolt to screw into. I haven't ever forced my boot closed and I am usually very careful when closing it, due to the boot being all glass. So I held the boot on with some good old bungee cord just to get home. :lol:




I managed to push the nut back into the housing and filled the gaps with epoxy resin, placed the broken bit of plastic back in and covered it with more resin. I left it for a day to set then the next day screwed the nut back in hand tight, but this first fix failed. I noticed the hinge was levering itself away from the glass when it opens breaking the resin. I decided to follow what I had done the first time, but used epoxy putty to sandwich the nut in the hinge, then added a big washer between the putty and rubber seal, to give it more surface area so it would not lever itself off. screwed the nut back in and left it for a day to set. Many people have had problems with the boot leaking and not being able to find the fault, I think it must just be a design fault and my boot doesn't leak any more. Now I just need to give my Aygo a good clean. B)

Finally got round to buying a JDM style Crystal Gear stick, I love it so sick ;) . I took a long time to get one because they are usually really over priced like £60 +£15 shipping, but I finally found one on ebay that was new and only £30 with shipping.

After going to Japfest 2 and seeing some cool stuff, I decided I would clean up my cars rear end. :cheer: I removed some stickers and the oval Toyota badge, then added a new Slambox sticker. Overall for something so simple, I think it has made it look a lot cleaner. All I want to do now is lower it a bit and stiffen it and get some steelies. B)
