When in doubt you can fix anything with either JB weld, duct tape or a combination of the two!!

Take it to a body shop and have it plastic welded.

I think i'd be taking it to a body shop. The products are deifnitely out there to do it yourself but the amount of work involved and the time it would take... Plus after spending all the time working on it and getting it baby ass smooth may be wasted when it comes time to get that nice factory spray job... just a thought...

Or you can do it Jeffsy's way. I've done that before as well and it does work pretty well. I most recently had a friend fix some plastics for another friend of mine and i don't know what he did, but it was awesome, way better than my soldering way. He's the body guy that welded it somehow, i'll ask and find out exactly what he does, or better yet, go get a lesson

well i have the time (take more time from studying) so i was just looking for something reasonably priced that would fix the rash and the crack...if i could find a product like the first one penfold suggested then i could just use the souldering iron to fix the crack and finish it with the putty...but $60 for a quart is a little much

It also does make a great deal of difference with a high quality soldering iron! Get one with different tips that can be changed. They have vertical flat ends, and bent horizontal flat ends that make plastic repair smoother etc...
