Clever fix even if I say so myself

While doing a coolant flush today I noticed there was a small weep from the coolant tank-[radiator has been replaced]-
I cut off the excess plastic moulded pipe holders on the top of the tank and using the soldering iron melted the plastic over the damaged area thus welding the leak-Filled and run up to temp-All good but I will replace tank as a precaution in the near future.
Note: the little release clip system for the bottom hose is very clever
but a bugger to get at.

Nicely done. I'm 100% sure that if I tried that I'd end up with an even bigger hole!!
