I own a conversion van that has these molded plastic bumper covers. They sort of snap into place but are secured by screws at each end. The wife had another one of her "innacurate" driving moments and ended up peeling the cover off and cracking the end of the molding where it attaches. What's a good product to make a strong repair to something like this? It seems like some sort of specialty epoxy with a re-inforcing mesh would be good. The crack is in a largely unexposed area and a repair from the rear would be cosmetically fine. Len, what do you recommend here?

Fusor 142 with mesh reinforcement, make sure to use their adhesion promoter also.

Thanks -- Len I already have an attachment that adapts fusor to my caulking gun, does the fusor 142 come in a size that fits that?

I've been using Fusor's new 114 for plastic repair and it works great. The entire thing fits in any caulk gun and is dispensed onto a mixing board where you mix the components with a putty knife. You prep and clean the plastic but you don't need an adhesion promoter with this product but you will need the reinforcing mesh.
