Can Shattered Glass Be Fixed?
If A Mirror Were To Break, Would It Be Possible To Melt It Down To Raw Materials And Re-Forge It, Or Is It Trash?
Technically, yes, you could melt the glass, make a new sheet of glass and then resilver it to make a new mirror.
However, it is very impractical. It would be akin to taking a totalled car, melting it down and making a new car out of it. It is conceivable but not practical.
Making A Fiber Glass Car Fender For My Car?
My Front Fenders Are Getting A Bit Rough And There'S Lots Of Body Fill And Dents And Such On Them. So I Would Like To Use The Old Fenders As Molds And Make New Ones Out Of Fiber Glass. Is The Whole Process Easy? And Can U Get A Really Clean Smooth Finnish? Heres A Picture A Fender Of My Car. Http://Www.Google.Ca/Imgres?Q=Subaru+Justy+Fender&Um=1&Hl=En&Sa=N&Tbm=Isch&Tbnid=Ugnxlgcv2yar7m:&Imgrefurl=Http://Www.Kaboodle.Com/Reviews/Subaru-Justy-Fender-Item-328760&Docid=A3cs9omdmtxv0m&Itg=1&W=300&H=197&Ei=H9wutvpvcemesglq79h8&Zoom=1&Iact=Rc&Dur=413&Page=1&Tbnh=134&Tbnw=204&Start=0&Ndsp=15&Ved=1T:429,R:0,S:0&Tx=125&Ty=70&Biw=1280&Bih=631
It won't work. Reason. Your existing fenders were created from a mold that is slightly smaller than the finished product. The mold has to be about 1/8' - 3/16" smaller to account for the thickness of the finished product. Using the existing fenders will result in a larger fender if molding on the outside of the old fender or smaller if molded from the inside of the existing fender. It would be easier to show with pictures, but Y!A isn't good for that.
You'll find it cheaper to buy ready made fenders if available. Otherwise, you'll have to take the existing fenders, create a mold from the inside surface, then make the new fenders from the created mold.
