my car isnt even that low but still

my lip has a crack. the lip is made of ABS plastic. The crack is along one of the brackets that comes around the front and hooks to the bumper near the wheel. it has split about 60-75% of the way down. I dont have a pic of this now, but is there any way to repair this??

I got a crack on my lip from some dumbass leaving some piece of trash on the freeway and I don't really care about it but thats because I want a 2b front anyways. Gorilla glue imo takes to long to dry but it holds hard. Is it screwing anything up such as the lip dropping a bit? If not then maybe wait a while and then glue it when you have time and can let it sit for a while.

Theres this stuff called epoxy, get the kind that can hold 2 tons. What I do for plastic repair is squeeze out the two parts equally on a piece of cardboard, and stir it up, and wait about 5 or 10 mnutes until is starts to get tacky, and apply it to whatever you need to bond, that way, it won't run, and give it a day to dry. I think you can mix some paint that matches your car too, if not you can paint over it.

the lip is actually unpainted...I need something fast dry first so I can just get it to hold in any way, then i can secure it better

just haul it off, more ground clearance

If anything, it only makes the front of your car look more narrow and squish
