Re: 4ksq Coolant Overflow Resevoir fixes?

Try a ski shop for plastic welding.  I used to wield these welders for all types
of nefarious purposes.  Note:  the best thing is not just a P-tex gun, which
might work OK (it's an extra-hot glue gun), but a real 'base welder' which is
like a big soldering iron with compressed air.  Oh yeah, and find a guy who
really knows how to use it...
