I need to help a friend out with a minor fender skirt repair. Are most of the skirts on late model trailers made of ABS plastic? I don't really know how to identify the material.

Shave a few shavings off and drop it in Acetone. If it melts it's ABS or will at least react to ABS glues.

Won't most plastics including PVC melt in acetone as well?
