The front mudguard, built out of what seems to be flexible plastic material, recently cracked and needs to be either repaired or replaced.
A friend of mine works at a car body-shop, and offered to fix the mudguard by attaching fibreglass on the inside of it. This sounds very attractive, since the stock replacement parts for the mudguard cost roughly 15% of the value of the motorcycle.
Is this solution (or another repair solution) likely to work?
I can imagine that the constant shaking and bombardment with road debris might cause the plexiglass to crack and/or dislodge, but don't know whether these are valid concerns. If repair is likely to work, what should I look for in the fixed mudguard to make sure that the job was done well?
