Tub Repair?

While trying to replace a section of copper pipe, I burned a small hole in my bathtub. I had fashioned a shield out of a wet towel and an aluminum baking pan but it was on my blind side when soldering the pipe and had slipped down without me seeing it. The #$%^ "T" joints for the bathtub are wedged between the "Blue Buzz Box", battery compartment and bathtub. Man, what a pain. I may have to leave the old pipe in there as it makes an "S" curve and is almost impossible to remove. Anyhow back to the tub, from doing a search I find it is made of ABS, any ideas on how to repair?

abs repair

Look at this link to the Apache Forum. Apache trailers had body panels made of ABS. I've fixed sections using this method.

you might try hot air welding in a patch made of similar material.

in the short term you could silicone in a patch of something so you can use it until it is repaired properly.

i hate wrecking stuff when you are fixing something else...make ya feel like yer going backwards!!!

you call them ferrets, i call them weasels.
