Cracked Golf Cart Roof Repair


New Member
I have a 2003 Club Car golf cart that my son cracked the roof on by hanging on the corner. Is there any way to repair the roof or does it just have to be replaced.

I sure don't want to have to buy a new one.

Thanks in advance.

Depending upon the crack, I imagine you coul repair it. If it is a small crack, a good quality glue. But for best results, some type of a backing on the underside to strengthen things up.

If it is a larger crack, then one of those fiberglass repair kits (get at auto parts stores), would work. That would require more work in sanding and painting, etc, but would be stronger than just glue.

Not surre what type of plastic is used for the roof, but that would be important to know so you can select the right type of glue.

Any way you can post a pic? Good luck with it, YD

I try to get a picture of the roof and post it up later. But, it's not a small crack. He basically hung on the corner and it broke. However, it is still attached on one side.

My concern is going to be holding it together long enough for glue to bond.
your roof is most likely an ABS type plastic. You will need a glue that will "attack" or soften the surfaces and fuse them together. Jump on the internet or go to a hobby shop, they should have an ABS glue as most plastic model kits are made of this or a similar type plastic. A good shop should also have some ABS sheet stock to make backer strips to go behind the cracks to reinforce and increase the glue surface area. Rough up all the surfaces with sand paper to get a good mechanical bond as well and it would be good if you could clamp or weight the repairs to get a good bond. Sand down the excess glue in the seams and Krylon the roof and you should be good to go. Hope this helps. :thumbsup:
