    Duct Tape!!!!!!! hehehe couldn't help it. I don't know... I would think that any kind of strong glue would fix it but I'm no expert on that stuff

    A small crack can be fixed with Bondo. If the crack is severe, reinforce it with some epoxy and a piece of plastic before you Bondo.

    Depending on the size of the crack you might try just a strong glue for a small crack. If it's large and/or chipped you might fill it with bondo, or quikplastik or something. Maybe reinforce is from behind with bondo/quikplastik behind it and a bit of superglueish stuff inside the crack?
