    instructions on how to construct or repair a frame without welding

    note: use gloves etc, epoxy is nasty stuff

    • prep surface of tubes: clean, sand, degrease etc
    • position tubes in jig, connect with rivets or glue in place prior to wrapping
    • cover a board with plastic sheeting
    • lay carbon or E-glass tape on the board and saturate with epoxy (use brush and or squeegee)
    • wrap tape around joint
    • wrap joint with heat shrink plastic
    • let joint cure, heat helps
    • sand, fill and paint to taste
