    Mostly they are pieces left over from injection molding. Similar to the pieces that hold all the parts of a model car together before you snap them off. They regrind these and use them again for injection molding. It melts them down and squirts them into the mold.

    I read in that other thread it took 6 hours for the chips to melt down? wow.. I would
    never think that with all those other potent chemicals in there.. hmm... were your chips
    too big maybe?

    I have to say this is one of the most interesting threads on these forums in quite some time!
    Yea... that stuff might be the way to go.

    This thread is one of the most interesting threads in a long time. I theory it totally makes cents. You have redeemed yourself coach

    He says the stuff is so much easier to work with tan bondo and doesnt crack like bondo would over time. heres some pics of the fabrication work they've done

    Up until now I never knew what it was made of, i planned on using it to install my lcd.
    Thanks for the info there coachreed
    That's some interesting stuff, I like their applications, but a little pricey...And I can't trust a company that tries to sell a LED and resistor for $5...

    hahaha obviously you know nothing about LED's. It comes with a resistor and a gromit and it is 8000-11000 mcd

    for that brightness it isn't a bad price

    Hmmmm, a resitor and a gromet? WOW...
    Wait...here we go: 11000mcd leds for all of $1.74, 24000mcd white led for $2.54...
    Resistors from the same site are 5 for a quarter, and a gromet can be found anywhere (for less than the $4 (EDIT-$3) it would take to make the cost equivalent to that of the abs adhesives site)

    It's all good... I was just giving you hard time

    I am really interested in this method of fabrication and would like to see any updated pictures as you continue to work on it.
