    View attachment 28276178 A tab on my KO MP14 red alert broke upon first transformation. It is the hook that connects the windshield section to the car hood/chest.

    The tab is part of the transparent windshield section, except painted white, so presumably it is polycarbonate plastic.

    Still have the piece fortunately, it is pretty small. The little tab/hook is very tiny, just wondering what is the best way to glue the tab back? It dones't matter if it looks bad since it will be covered, but it must be very strong.

    Was thinking about Krazy glue, or those A/B epoxy glue, or this thing:

    1 Set Quick 5 Second Fix UV Light Repair Tool Glue Refill Liquid Plastic Welding 6934767477079 | eBay

    Just wondering what's everyone experience concerning re-gluing this kind of stuff.

    Thanks.

    Crazy glue won't hold. It doesn't actually bond.
    The A/B epoxy glue may work if you get the clear stuff that bonds to plastic.
    5-Second Fix won't work. It just envelopes the piece in liquid resin.

    With that being a tab that will be under stress when separated, your options for a permanent solution are very limited.
