Usually the words "rig" & "bmw" just dont go together. for a plastic part im just trying to get the most out of it, since the radiators only got 20k on it (motor mounts... for those not following. common #e39
leak spot) man, almost 7000 miles with the jb plastic weld. im determined to get to next summer without replacing this radiator. after the leak broke through again, ive decided to use a combination of weaved tape and gorrilla brand plastic epoxy, with mutiple layers, allowing a curing of 24 hours. for a quick 2 hour radiator repair, the jb stuff held up great. scratch up the surface and you could drive it in 2 hours once it dried hard.
hopefully these new measures can last a bit longer. next step is a fully alluminum radiator #e39 #m5 #bmw #v8 #radiatorfix #jbweld #plasticweld #riggged #itworks #radiatorleak
