I have read some threads that people have had cases welded, but some are in such awkward spots that they cannot. If you can, put a pic up so we can see just where the crack is and the severity of it..

create a photobucket account, upload the pics, and when they finish there will be a url code that you copy and paste into your post. it may very well be weldable but i dont want to give you the wrong info.
