Jb weld may be worth looking into
some very strong epoxy.
I have used it on metals and plastics before has held well.

But I am not sure on the materials you have asked ..

Been in touch with Pace repair service, what an unhelpful bunch, they wouldnt tell me offered to have them back for n expensive rebond!!!!

I think we are capable of cleaning applying ?? and aligning things up correctly.

Know anyone who works in a body shop?

I used to know a chap very well, who was a panel beater (a proper one). He used to have a two pack gun, which mixed the resin and hardener together, so that you just applied the 'goo' to whatever you wanted to bond. They stick car wings, bonnet skins, door skins etc on with this stuff and it will just about stick anything to anything else, provided the surfaces are clean.

Apparently it costs a few bob, so he just used to bring the gun round when needed, and as you will only need a tiny amount it's not worth buying this stuff, not that I could tell you the name of it, as there was no brand name on it.
