The JB Weld fix seems to have worked! Thanks to all who sent condolences and advice, I have thrown some babybacks on as a celebration!

Sorry about the tarps and whatnot in the background - just moved in and have not had time to clean up! Disclaimer - I am not a graduate of the JB Weld school of repair, so it looks a bit rough!

    Congratulations Jet! Good to see you have the egg working hard.

    This might not be important, neverthless, keep some room between the egg and anything burnable, just in case.

    Looks like you FME degree from JB Weld school... (Fixed My Egg).

    Good Job Jet!!...glad to see you back...heed Grandpa's advice and keep that baby away from anything flammable...would hate to see it collapse sometime while 'nuclear'...
  • Looks like an unique work of art to me.

    Spacey
  • Yeah I'll stay away from "Nuclear" - wouldn't want the Navy putting the old missle smackdown on it because of "dangerous fuel" like they did that satellite!

  • Thanks. I would have like it to be less ghetto-looking, but hey, it works again!

    Jet,

    If you want to get rid of the gray, go to Lowes, Home Depot or Ace and pick up some high temp green paint. You will have the 'bondo' look gone in no time. It is possible even the low temp will work.

    The bottom of the egg sometimes gets hot but not all that hot, possibly won't even need high temp paint.

    I have used it for years with good results on classic cars. I have an exhaust mainifold with some on it over a crack and it has held.
