I used fiberglass and fiber cloth to repair some damage on my right headlight housing. All repair work was on the backside so it wouldn't show. It seems quite strong. I dropped the whole thing on a concrete floor and redamaged it. My previous repairs held just fine.

Never noticed it until I cleaned the paint off of it. Don't know why lead will not work, just a bit touchy to use, take all safety measures , mask etc, if you try this .

My fuel pump took a dump this morning. It was one that I got from Speedway that had NPT fittings on both the intake and output sides as I run AN lines.
I am looking at this as a replacement:
Any recommendations for something better...
