Wanted side panels for Evinrude Etec 75hp O/B

The side panels on my Evinrude Etec 75hp outboard are cracked and opening up after previous owner repair. Has anybody a pair of second hand ones for sale please or can suggest method of permanent repair?

Replacement panels would be the way to go, however possible to repair with fibreglass matt from the inside. No point trying to glue. Will need surface tissue mixed with resin to give strength. Did the same with my daughter's Fiat 500 front bumper after she helped a deer into the next life. You can of course fill, sand and flat on the outside, but where does it stop, as will need primer and top coat.

thanks for the info. somebody on a different site said glue named *Plastex*. I haven't read up on it yet. Spoke to get at Caley marina & they have two engines with same fault so must be quite common so can't imagine buying S/H panels.
Regards Eric

The Etec lower cowls are a very precise fit. People are clumsy & lazy and try to draw the 2 halves together on the screws. The 2 halves should be brought together by hand until they fit snugly, then the screws fitted.

Just had a look at those Plastex video tutorials. Never used it myself. Strange stuff, basically a powder and activator solution. If you were using it, then you would need to grind out a V section on the inside of the break to get enough surface area to connect the plastic. Still think the fibreglass option is a better call, as you can pull edges together, tack and glue.
