Hanging with the boys, the occasional crotch-scratch (your own) and working on your car should all be god-given rights. These are the little things that make life worth living. But sometimes, working on your car can result in a price to pay. How many times have you been removing an interior panel for a stereo install or swapping out an ECU when you hear… CRACK?

So now that you have broken a plastic piece what do you do? You can go to the dealer and spend 100 bucks or more, try to find someone parting out a car and hope they have the same color or steal one (DON’T DO THAT!). However, before you throw out the piece you just broke, why not fix it? THAT’S RIGHT FIX IT!!!

TOOLS NEEDED: Torch, flathead screwdriver, cable ties and spray paint.
