Done the same on the tail unit, used a PVA glue to hold it together, then fiberglassed the back of it, sanded it back to tidy back up, pain in the arse!

the best thing for plastic is a 2 part chemical( not epoxy) that is called plastic weld. It works great. It melts into the plastic and bonds stronger then the base plastic. I attached the tabs with it and then file it back smooth so you can not tell it was ever fixed.
autozone had it at 5$ a tube
