How to restore interior door panel?

I need a lil help. I am retoring my old 94 Aerostar as staed in another post. What I require is how I could fix my org door panels. The plastic that they are formed over is cracked, from the winter, and I think/know Ford was a lil cheap adn missed a door tab. This caused to panels to flex and crack. I can replace them for 500$ new or if I can find one 100$ used. Or if I have to recover them for 40$ each.
Any thought on what I could use to repair the crack? I have plastic welded but it still does not hold.
I would like to make custom ones, but if you know how they are formed over the top of the door, It may be new thing for me. I have restored cars before but only on flat panels.
Thanks Dave

The panels are made from Polypro and few glues hold it well. Harbor Freight sells a plastic welding set up that does a good job and is far less than the new panel cost. I have access to it here and we use the crap out of it and it works great.
