    Replacement part: plastic over engine on A2

    The plastic piece over the engine (not the scoop itself but the piece it sits on) is cracked. In a few places. Is that an easily replaced item on an A2? It looks easy to remove but where do I get a replacement part from?

    I would get some fiberglass and resin from the local hardware shop and repair it yourself, it's super easy to do, and it's spray painted with rattle can flat black, I think Terry Kennedy knows the exact paint color but it won't take more than 1 day to do the work and it will look perfect.

    If the cracks aren't structural, then you can just use bondo to fill in the cracks.....the fiberglass and resin will help restore rigidity to the product.

    If you're set on buying a new one you'd contact TMI

    I'd just wrap the entire piece with a sheet of 14kX14k Carbonfiber (or a few sheets of 3kX3k twill if you want it nice) and I'd use epoxy instead of resin (less smelly and stronger). A wet setup would be fine and strong enough. Just remember, the less resin/epoxy you use, the stronger the part will be.
