The title says it all. I've got a few ancient butyrate clear bodies with a few blemishes, including small cracks, enlarged mounting holes, slight squashing and cruddy enamel paint. I'm sure there are lots of folks out there like me who want to reverse or at least reduce the appearance of such problems and just as importantly, stop them getting worse.

How do you do it? Are there other threads out there already?

On painted bodies I use a small amount of cyanocrilate just on the edges of the crack. Applied with a pin previously introduced in the cyano tube and using just the cyano it retains, with no drop on the pin. The crack remains noticiable, but not so much, and I hope this prevents the crack of getting larger.

in addition if the car is to see action, I back it up with a daub of silicone adhesive behind the crack. Gives it some flexibility when hit, without further cracking (hopefully). As to paint, I think there are other strings here on safe stripping procedures.
