Honda ATV Plastic Repair?

Hey everybody!

I was wondering if anyone knew how to repair a atv plastic that has been broken in about 6 places?
I heard that you can use fiberglass repair kits but I have also heard that it will not bond to the plastic and will just break off again. I Looked up getting new plastic but it is going to cost about $700 to replace and Im not willing to spend that much, but It is kinda embarrassing driving around with plasitcs that are bound to fall off at any given moment

If anyone has any ideas it would be greatly appreciated!!!

There are several ways, and shadetrees project explained a good one in his thread, in the projects forum.

I would shop around on the price of plastic, as we replaced all the colored plastic on a foreman and part of the black, for around 350 last winter on a foreman. That was at the local dealer.

My son just bought a plastic welder to use on them, but we haven't tried it out yet.

They are currently zip tied right now, but I drove by a group of good look'n ladys the other day and stoped to talk to them and one of them leaned on my fender and it just came right off......... so im lookn for a way to make them look brandnew with out them being brandnew ( Im real cheap!!! ) I like the soildering iron idea, My buddy also mentioned something called JB or JD plastic weld, he said you use like a food colouring or somthing to make it look like the same colour and he said it holds up nicly, has anyone ever heard of this stuff and does it work??

And thank you for the ideas everyone they are appreciated!!!
