Default Has anyone welded a Broken Arius Plate?

Hi,

Just looking for some advice or experiences from anyone who has tried to fix their Arius after it failed in the common place at the toe.

It failed just out of warranty so I'm struggling to have it replaced and desperately need a working plate for the weekend.

Thank you

Is it in 2 pieces?

I havent done it, but you COULD try to cut/dremel out the break line a little. Apply JB weld and bend it back flat. Once cured, sand down the areas, to bare aluminum, and jb weld the crap out of the area where it needs reinforcement. Just be careful where your applying it so it wont interfere with the plates normal functions.

Not quite, just bent and torn at the usual place between the toe and the truck.

Thanks for the advice though!

It's not an option they have given me, just a discount on the Platinums where the known problem has allegedly been fixed.

For anyone interested here's the result

Before




After
