    Top tip for rejuvenating and re-surfacing ABS plastic panniers ....... Hot air gun , get the distance right , not too close and keep it moving across the surface until the colour changes and darkens

    I tried reshaping a twisted front mudguard for my zzr1100 with a hot air gun once, yeah didn't end well, turns out not enough heat+Excessive amount of brute force=lots of razor shape pieces of plastic shooting past my face at high speed.

    We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box.
