Whats best to repair wheelwell trim

Hi,

Our bounder has 3 of the original fiberglass wheelwell trims still inplace, but when purchased the previous owner had replaced one rear with a more modern abs/high impact plastic trim (with a speckled finish to the outside with screw/mount holes around the edge)

Now this has cracked in several places and now in at least 3 seperate pieces

Now I can get new ones made from a reputable source, just rather expensive.
What sort of repairs would I be able to use?

Maybe some epoxy resins or fiberglass it ,any specific glues etc that work well with this sort of plastics? As looking at the possible work involved may just be easier in the long run to stomache the new one!

Thanks for any info as to any glues etc that may work.

Try using an epoxy with microballons it can be found at any marine hardware store(West Marine) or you can send for this product. If you read further down the page it's good for joints fillets and surface imperfections.

it was 5000 or 5500 easy to use you could leave the back thick since it wouldnt be seen. i also used it in the southwind when i bought it had damage on siding after repair and some appliance paint it matched
