The plastic is not poly, so glues with solvents will stick. There are a few that have been used here. Check the search (magnifying glass) for previous posts. Plastex, JB plastic weld, are a couple and a few other recipes. Good luck.

Believe a repair worth trying first, cracks not that bad. Common location. Just finished a reshell myself. Not hard if you can solder and have the right tools. Took 4hrs first time. Sure is pretty, and flies.

Some drill a tiny hole at the ends of cracks to stop the spread before glue. Adding a strong adhesive tape over the crack is also helpful. Not pretty unless used artistically but helpful. Hope you get to add a success story.

I'm afraid to make a hole in the crack, lest I make it worse. I will just put the cola and let you know if I was successful.
