How to repair a cracked roof box lid

Hi there, I've managed to crack the lid of my roof box (badly), there's some loose bits as well. What's the best way to repair?

    did the same thing - backed out of my garage when the door wasn't quite open and SMASH! I'm going to try Goop Contact Adhesive to put the bits back together then seal 'er up with some fiberglass patches (the kind you'd fix a canoe with). I'll let you know how it turns out.

SOURCE: cracked thule box is what Thule recommends you use to seal your crack :) -- it is an ABS patch kit and is waterproof as it is used for permanent canoe and kayak repairs. it is NASA designed.

I am using it on my Atlantis 1800.

How can i repair a crack in my hard case swiss cargo roof rack carrier?

I would use fiberglass (resin, hardener + cloth) on the inside after thoroughly scuffing (and if necessary drilling reinforcing holes) the carrier surface. If after doing that the exterior is not to your liking you could remove any loose material, fill any low areas with auto body filler, sand smooth, and paint. This type of repair will be watertight and likely stronger than the original piece. I have done similar repairs on fiberglass, plastic, carbon fiber, and wood. If the carrier is smooth plastic I would recommend drilling small holes along that crack to allow for a better bond. If it is fiberglass carbon fiber or another composite course scuffing should suffice.

How to repair cracks in concrete floors of house and how to make them waterproof

simply chip the conrete cracked maybe up to 3cm wide and 2-3 cm deep the whole way and clean thoroughlly with water and the best is to blow air after you wash with water to take away the loose debris then apply concrete epoxy arround the cracks with clean paint brush # 1-2 let it stay for about 30mins and you feel the epoxy is starting to set before then pour the conrete mix with fine sand that will do the trick.

I have a 2001 Saab 9-3. The spoiler is cracked. I'd like to take it off to repair. Can't figure out how to get it off? Anybody know?

look under the trunk lid. if there isplastic covering the inside trunk lid look for screws to take it off. if there are no screws present then it will just pop off...
But if there is no plastic cover just look on the inside where the spoiler contacts the roof and you should see some screws or some nuts.

Line crack of roof.

I have a solution for cracking of these Thules.
The stores that sell these, carry a patching kit. It's a 3x8" piece of the same material with adhesive on one side. You can take a heat gun and soften the patch and place it over the crack and shape to fit before it cools. I've had 2 Thules on the roof of my excursion with stress cracks at the anchor points. This stuff really does the job and it's really inexpensive.
I have them on both boxes at all stress points... It has solved this issue.
