Laptop Bezel Cracked. Suggestions?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Just happened

This laptop has to last me like 2 more years of life. Any suggestions on which glue or adhesive I should use?




Edit... well I did an eBay search and I guess this problem isn't as severe as I thought. I can get a new panel for about $20. Still would rather fix this one though. What do you guys suggest? My ex tried to fix her dell panel once and it just got worse and worse. Should I try to fix, or just drop $20?

Personally, I would try glue first. It's not going to look pretty, but it will get the job done. I would use a clear epoxy such as:


If it doesn't suit your asthetic needs the try a replacement panel...

Epoxy!!! Keep an eye on it as it drys. Make sure it doesn't loosen up and what not.

i would rather just spend the $20 on a new one. But if you have glue already might as well just glue it and see how it does.

Whatever you do not use a superglue type.
The vapors will turn any fingerprints white and it may eat away at some of the plastics.
