  • Fender Repair Kit

    I have a snapped rear fender on an x-ped. I have seen the fender repair kits for 25 bucks. It looks like they screw into the top of the old fender. Anyone ever used these kits or fixed a rear fender? Are these repair kits any good? How do they work? Whats the best option for fixing a snapped fender?

    Check the price of new one. May be cheaper to replace.

      The fender repair kit is basically just a new fender with some bolts. What do you mean by checking the price of a new one? Is there a different option?

        I assumed it is the usual plastic fender, if so DDM has most parts or GoPed may have an OEM one.

          Ive never seen a plastic fender for an xped before. The picture I posted is an OEM replacement from Goped.com

            Post a pic of the damage. I would likely recommend to buy a cheap harbor freight angle grinder then take it to a muffler shop and pay $10 cash to fix the crack. Then grind it down and repaint.

              Blue xped has the fender snapped off. I bought the zero error fender in black. Might leave it black and just bolt it on. Or I was thinking about getting the fender powdercoated blue to match the original color. Can a paint shop match that color? How much would it cost to get the fender powdercoated?

              And I have a super xped with a cracked fender. Its cracked on both sides. Still holding up but was wondering if there was a way to fix the cracks. You said a muffler shop can do that? Would it mess up the paint at all?

                Paint needs to be ground off to allow for welding. Probably need to get that kit for the one missing.

                  Right on, Ill probably just leave it the way it is, its still pretty sturdy so should be ok. I ordered the fender for the blue one but the shop closed down temporarily for the virus. Any idea how much powdercoating a tiny fender would cost? And can they match the paint? Never had anything painted before.

                    Powdercoating material itself is cheap. It is the prep (like any paint) that is the big driver of cost and need a large batch to make it worthwhile for the coater. So like if you coat a set of rims you could probably throw in a whole scooter frame for free. But would be like $$$ for the rims.

                    You are likely better off buying a few rattle can spray paints to try and match.

                      I figured that would be the case. Guess Ill start looking around for a similar baby blue rattle can. Thanks

                        Little bit of rattle can and a well placed decal. Bet most could not tell it was repaired.

                          I am thinking about using Rustoleum Enamel Paint in Safety Blue. Anyone think that will be an Ok match to the original baby blue? Will i need to use primer first? How about clear coat?

                              Primer is always a good idea. You can build it up with coats and wet sand it to remove and imperfections. The blue is high gloss so should be OK. I used that on a welding cart and looks great.

                              Might want to paint the visible parts both with the rattle can so there is not a start color difference and might fool the eye with looking at the front.
