Default Reinforcing ABS

Ok, we all know that ABS parts break on occasion and need a little reinforcing. And while I have done a considerable amount of fiberglassing in my time, I haven't done much lately, so I don't have any scraps laying around, and I'm not about to go out and buy a few yards just because I need a 1 or 2 inch square now and then.

So, here's what I do...

You know those little fabric softener sheets that your wife throws into the dryer? After they have been used and the softener is gone, I just pull them out of the trash, cut to size, and CA in place. Those little beauties are tough as nails and CA holds them in place beautifully!
