Unless of course, you're a latino streetwalker.

It's beautiful! as long as you roughened the epoxy-bound surfaces well, I'd be very confident in taking that as far as a shock pump will give out. I used 5 minute epoxy on my last pengun, and it's 100% leakfree and it's structural integrity is fine. Roughening is definitely the key.

thank you, yes i did roughen it a bit probably could have done some more but ill put it under something when i fill it first, and i have been able to get 80psi into it but there is a small leak from the piston not sealing properly could higher pressure fix this?
thanks
