    You can also buy products designed for above, which is known as “Solvent Bonding.” Medium viscosity product is a lot easier to use with thicker parts. Acetone will turn ABS to goo if you aren’t judicious.

    That said, remounting a broken tab can be a challenge because it’s carrying the load.
    Yeah, id recommend plastic welding with embedded mesh for a part like that.

    I should have mentioned to brush it on sparingly.

    It works surprisingly well. I'd say 75% of the panels on my Grom were acetone welded, including some mounts and tabs.

    A higher viscosity solvent would be very beneficial, I'd imagine.
