Thanks,

no, its not an authentic one, its poly. plastic weld? never heard of it. Would bondo and a respray (just in that area) work or wouldnt that be flexible enough? Plastic weld sounds like it would work if I can find someone who does that. Thanks for the feedback guys

yes, plastic weld. i dont know who does it. my work has one and i want to get mine welded together, but i dont know where i can get a small sheet of that hardness of polyurethane, especially since i dont know the hardness of it. can anyone shed some light on the hardness? (mine is authentic so its probably different than yours)

also, dont use bondo for that.

Mine cracked about halfway through and I was able to epoxy the underside, fill the crack and sand it flush. Your break looks more severe though so that's probably not a good option.
