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

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.
