Refinishing plastic, kinda....

Well as some of you may know, I had my car broken into and my cd player stolen and the plastic on my dash is broken pretty good.
For a new dash peice, it will cost me $125 for a peice of plastic just because it is for a corvette!!
Im thinking of glueing the peices back togather and trying to refinish it to look as close to origianl as I can. Its black and it doesn't really have the grainy plastic texture to it, its real slick and shiney.
I was thinking of wetsanding it some, but becuase of it being broken and getting glued back togather it may not look quite right. I plan on wetsanding another peice that wasn't broken but also cost quite a bit to be replaced.
Does anyone know of any kinda of plastic primer or anything that might be able to build of the surface and sanded down or painted or anything like that?
