Help: How to repair a broken codpiece

While trooping yesterday the front part of my codpiece broke. Now I am pondering how to fix it.
It`s vacformed abs.

Two ideas that came to mind:

-use fibreglass / gfk to bridge the break inside (=> will this stick to the abs ?)
-use gfk matting soaked with E6000

Are those methods viable ? Are there other methods ?

Thanks for any help :)

Pictures?

You could use acetone and scraps abs trimmings to make a paste to fuse. Then reinforce w/ fiberglass

I've tried fiberglass a number of times. It usually works for a bit, sooner or later, seems like it always pulls loose. The paste idea seems worth a try!!!

Paste and some sort of backing plate to help reinforce the area. Once its split it’s always gonna be a weak point. I like using MKE or some similar plastic welder

Replacing it would be the best option in the long run, where abouts did it break?

It broke from top to bottom.
Using 2 layers of fine mesh gfk/fibreglass matting soaked in E 6000 worked really well though. I am confident that this will hold for a long time and still has a little flex in it. Recommended.
