How do I fix this?

I believe that itís urethane (someone correct me if Iím wrong), itís a piece of body cladding (fits along the bottom of the quarter on my í87 TA) that is cracked in the front where the pocket in the back that holds the strip that the mounting studs are attached to ends.

What kind of repair will hold this stuff together? How about something that I can get in small quantities since this is the only damaged plastic that I see on the whole car/project.

Urethane isn't to tough to repair, check out some of the repair information on the fusor website. You'll have roughly $50 in materials from abrasives to plastic repair material and primer, etc...

Well, Iím coming to the conclusion that Iím not sure what it isÖ it does have a yellow inside like the stuff that is usually identified as urethane, but no labels or logos inside, at least not that I recognize. The only thing inside is what I assume is a factory PN and build code:

10030539
GAV. 1
Z 7743
F U R

Bob, thanks for the answer but man, thatís not what I want to hearÖ sometimes when you get lucky you can snag most of the bottom moldings for $50-100, itís hard to swallow that kind of money to fix a 1Ē long tear. Like I know that Evercoat makes an adhesive that will work but last I checked it was like $40, especially if the tube comes with enough in it to mold a whole new part out of it or make like 600 of these repairsÖ
