that can be repaired very easily BUT you'll probably have to repaint the upper.

yip...sand, fill, sand, feather edge, primner and then it needs to be painted. You could get some colorite and probably match it pretty good. You really want to take your time withthe prep work and repair though.

1. go to Home Depot or Lowes and get some ABS cement ($3.00). use masking tape and mask off the rashed area. apply the ABS cement on, wait about 20-30 secs then pull the tape off. the cement should stay right in the rashed area. sand/shape from there.

i had rashed my upper in the same spot and you can even tell now.

if your plastic comes out half as good as that polished mid pipe you'll end up spending around $63 bucks :lol
