Hello. I have an older tan Ovation case that at some point in a previous owners use, sustained an impact that left a 2” Crack in the plastic. It appears that I can put the two edges flush, and I was hoping that the interior might be able to be removed in a small spot near the headstock so that I could apply a proper glue into the crack and use capillary action to bond the crack.

If this is possible, what is the best way to peel back the lining without ruining it, and secondly, what would be the best glue to use to effect the repair? Finally, best glue to reattach the lining?

Thank you very much.

Yes, it is possible to remove the inside case.
The inside is a solid piece of foam so you would need to remove it all at once.
No, I don't know how it is done.

Duct Tape works.

Mr. Old Man Arthur,

Thank you very much. If I figure anything else out I’ll let the forum know. Otherwise, I’ll try your solution and maybe try the clear Gorilla tape. I’m enjoying scanning the forums.

Thanks again,
