    Plastic tank welding ?

    Hi,
    Got a pal with an oil tank off a Bridgestone 350 which has a bit of a crack. The material is super slippy, maybe HDPE, and glueing it looks unlikely to be durable. Can anyone recommend a workshop or fella who will know how to weld the crack?

    Check local body shops, they should be equipped for welding plastic bumpers
