Re: [Killietalk] Fixing a broken tank
I would take a piece of glass a little bit smaller than the end panel that
is cracked and run a bead along the crack and around the edges of the patch
piece and just cover the crack with the new glass . this will save you time,
cut hands, swearing and the problem of removing the frame.
If the cracked end is exposed just cut some back visquene to it and cover
it. Plant some jungle Val on that end to hide the crack from the inside.
