Mudguard coming off Adult tricycle due to poor welding.
Hi Everyone, i have several disabilities from birth and i use a Tricycle to get around. I only got the trike about a month ago and it has been causing some problems. The main issue is the mudguard that is welded to the base. It has broken off twice due to poor welding. I had it replace only for it to break off again. I am now fighting with the manufacturer for a second replacement. They claim they have never had mudguards come off before. I pointed out to them it is coming off due to poor welding which is very thin. I took it to a bike shop and the owner was a welder by trade and he said that the welding was very poor. Please see some pictures.
When i get the replacement it is only going to happen again. Is there a way to reinforce the weld on the mudguard so it doesn't come off again.
