Craft glue. specifically E6000 Industrial Strength glue. You can find it at Wal-mart, craft stores, ect. I use it for all kinds of things, including plastic and wood. It works really well and is easier to use and clean up than crazy glue crap.

NP, I even used it to glue together my cat door, 2 smooth planes of plastic. Didn't even have to scuff them up and it is holding up great. That is with 4 cats and a 80 pound dog stuffing his head through it.

There is a “welding stick “ that is used to fix roto-mold kayaks (i.e. ocean kayaks) when they spring a leak. Evidently, nothing else adheres to the kayak besides this, so I’m ass/u/ming that it may be good stuff. :welder:

My Grandfather swore by Epoxy PC-7. It comes in 2 cans that you need to mix as needed. It also comes in 2 colors, dark grey and light grey. It takes at least 24 hours to set, but it sticks to almost anything and is tough as nails. I've used it to fix everythign from side view mirrors that broke off to gas tanks on mowers.

I saw someone patch their fiberglass bost hull with that stuff once(edit: pc-7).. I also saw him getting a tow in a week later cause the stuff didn't work, and his boat was swamping.

I thought I saw it at Home Depot once, but I may be wrong. You may have a better chance and one of you "local" hardware stores, like Ace or TruServ.

Just food for thought: If you get too strong a plastic glue you'll break it again along the margin where the glue meets the plastic, too weak and it'll break right down the centre of the glue. That's assuming the part is subjected to any stress. Stronger isn't always better.

Hey now, crazy glue has it's purpose. I've used it more than once to close up a cut on a knuckle, etc. Works great to keep it closed when it keeps reopening itself up.

Hmmm, that's interesting, never really thought about that! I've gotta center console that's cracked. It's not gonna really see any stress, cause it's not around the mounting part of the brackets. It's on the back at the bottom. If you could make a recommendation off that, LMK. Thanx, Wes
