Fairing Repair Help/Recommendations

I accidentally cracked one of the two screw tabs on my rear/tail fairing. It's where the screws for the driver seat goes. The tab isn't completely detached from the fairing body.

I'm looking for DIY fixes that won't necessarily look cheap or hacked. Thanks

Plastic welding. May not be diy though.
Start looking for a 2nd hand replacement.

Plastics are tricky...but not impossible and very specific...you need to burn a piece...smell it...to identify the type of plastic...then seek out a very specific adhesive...which typically is very pricey...or ...jb weld...the stuff just works and is incredibly tenacious

Your off the shelf superglue won't cut it ..but there is a glue that will...it's always expensive...always...and is very specific to the plastics chemistry... determining the plastic is a bit of a leap but the burn test is usually pretty accurate... different plastics smell very distinctively...and wether or not it drips...color of the flame etc pinpoint the material...but again...jb weld is amazing stuff
