  • INSERT the oil drain plug back into the pan

Step 2: Mix Epoxy

  • Dry fit the shell onto the clean oil pan

  • Prepare a surface to mix the epoxy on. Ideally this a movable and solid surface.
  • Use a solid putty knife or scrap piece of metal/wood to mix the epoxy
  • WEAR GLOVES

  • Clean the pan with acetone again
  • Clean the shell with acetone again

Testimonials

The estimate to fix my truck was over $2,000. With very few tools and a Saturday afternoon I managed to patch up my pan for a fraction of the price. It’s been 3 years now and I still don’t see any spots in the driveway. This kit saved me well over a grand!
