Been messing around trying to fix my badly cracked front grill and another to do a Saudi Grill repo. Ive found a great product to mend the broken plastic. Permatex Black Plastic Welder is the stuff you want, it cures up in 5 mins and melts into the plastic. You can add a fine mesh as a backer for reinforcement. And the black color matches the original black plastic used to mold the originals.
This is the Saudi Repo I just finished. Original Disco grill was broken all to hell and a few days and 3 tubes of permatex I was able to cut out the center and add the screen. Screen is glued in with U-Poly Tiger Bond. Hardest part was getting a portfino red to color match.

Nice looking grill! This has been on my to-list for years. Where did you get the mesh from?
