    Well, I’m no expert, but in-process using JB Weld Plastic filler epoxy black. Seems to work ok. Wish I had a before picture...cracks and Knicks out of it.

    I use liquid (not gel) super glue. Then as quick as you can cover it with baking soda. Let it sit for 15-20 sec and brush away the excess baking soda. It’ll harden like a rock and can be built up in layers and sanded or filed then prime and paint.

    Looks good. Did you use the JB Weld? I was going to suggest black ABS glue.
    I figured super glue will get brittle over time from constant heating/cooling.

    If the crack closes up tight, on the front, i use a coat hanger and propanr torch. Get a helper to hold the crack tight (um), then heat the coat hanger loop in the torch and melt across the crack on the backside. You can try using a slice of the same material to melt in as well.

    The crack wont disappear from the front, but it also wont mess up any graining or texture in the front.

    I used JB black Plastic Urethane gap filler to fill the scratches and cracks. I used JB plastic epoxy fix the broken parts with splices. Lots of sanding to smooth it all out. Used filler primer and SEM trim paint.
