    be a fibreglass job I thinks.
    If at first you don't succeed, destroy all the evidence.

    yea, you may have to melt the 2 bits of plastic back together if its a clean break, then finish with fibreglass / filler.

    (that't what I'd do anyway)

    Some say it would some says it will not hold for long, I was told to plastic weld it but it seems to thin to get a good job.

    can't see why it wouldn't work apart from the fact yours has cracked on a corner.
    He's still joined the 2 sides together and filled it which will give it some strength.

    it may be repairable for a short amount of time but they break for a past time

    Same problem as mine. I used a soldering iron, heated a small mesh and bridged the two pieces before rebonding the plastic to conceal it. Trick is apparently how to rebuild the profile of the joint as it is a common weak spot I learnt (the hard way).
