    As a project I am interested in getting some Liquid plastic, the sort you could possibly recover or repair insulated tools with, I realise it won't be up to VDE standards, but would like to give it a try anyway, anyone got any ideas as to where I can get some? tried The Shed, Wickes etc.

    Your welcome, but check the pricing because it looks to be about £7 cheaper direct from Plastidip (http://www.plastidip.co.uk).

    whilst we're on the subject of getting hold of the unusual, anyone know where i can get a bowden cable repaired or replaced? pic shows where the plastic retaining collar has snapped on the groove. ( should be enlargeable).

    Acetone and polystiryne.

    Dissolve the polystiryne into the acetone until it's like gel and layer on.
    Rather brittle if they're airbubbles but very diy :D

    when operated, the collar is under tension. should have been made of metal, but that's Ford for you. their answer is to replace cable and lock assembly ( can't buy the cable separately ). parts cost £100. labour if they fit it £80.

    Cheaper option would be a specialist breakers yard.

    tried a few, but there's not many c-max Fords with power tailgates in scrapyards.

    Any customers who are metal workers? Maybe see if you could a new piece turned out of steel to replace the broken plastic moulding? If you could get the profile right, cut a slot down it to insert the cable.

    We get something called copper reducing links which are basically a reducing ferrule and would work to replace that broken plastic part. I can't find a UK supplier though. You'd need to heat up the nipple and pull it off first then refit it using a solder pot afterwards. It's a lot of messing around to save a few quid though Tel.

    **edit** Here's something similar Copper Round Pin Terminals - Cablecraft - http://www.cablecraft.co.uk/copper-pin-terminals.html
    You could maybe try slotting one with a dremmel tool rather than removing the nipple.
