        Plastic welding works OK for ABS, but nothing ever makes it quite as good as new.

            I never tried that, people always recommended MAT4 or MAT5 or some such. But ABS plumbing glue will certainly bond the pieces together. The joint might be a bit more flexible afterward? Did you try it? How did it work?

              Black ABS pipe glue. Get a foot of pipe too. Cut some small pieces off with a handsaw and mix the shavings in with the glue to make it thicker. Use the pieces to reinforce the repairs.

              Prep your parts well by sanding off paint in the area with coarse sandpaper.
