Thanks to all who replied.  Dave VE3SAT pointed me at this product


Loctite 2 part Super Glue for ALL PLASTICS and it works where other crazy
glues wouldn't both the liquid and gel types.

For Canadians it is available at Canadian Tire.  The packaging looks a
little different than on that link as it is necessarily bilingual
English/French and rather than called "PLASTIC BONDER" is called "SUPER GLUE
- All Plastics" but included the same 2 tubes of activator and glue.  It is
a liquid glue and not gel.

What a find as I've had trouble in the past with other repairs on weird and
wonderful plastics or unknown origin.

You can check the site below for progress on this project as I'll post  more

Thanks again.
