Repair kit for dents, holes and cracks

BENT the Land Rover? A composite epoxy repair kit is said to give a permanent fix for dents, holes and cracks in aluminium surfaces.

Lurmarks Seal-N-Place aluminium repair kit comprises a two-part epoxy filler, supplied in individual tubes. Price is £6.24.

To carry out a repair, the epoxy filler is smoothed on with an applicator and a mesh screen patch put in place; a final filler coat completes the work. After two hours curing, the filled area can be sanded and painted (01954-260097).
