Busted Navpod

Good morning,

In the ongoing drama of my second winter of refitting Ariel, I had a problem yesterday. I briefly lost my balance in the cockpit, and reached out to catch myself before plunging into an open locker. What I grabbed was my large navpod, but only the rear part of it, the front part is in my basement being reconfigured.

I managed to crack off the corner of the blastedly expensive thing. Does anyone know what kind of plastic they are made of, and what kind of adhesive would make the best repair? Strength, cosmetics, UV tolerant, etc?

Thank you, your clumsy friend,
