repairing crack in spoiler

I'm getting my 86, 944 ready for paint and I need some advise on a repair to the front spoiler. It has a crack in the front and a small crack in the side, I was considering a new one when someone suggested welding the old one. my question is has anyone had any luck with this process?

http://www.plastex.net.au/ I use this on cracks in spoiler ect, take a look see what you think. Seem to work fine on the item's I have used it on. Welding will work okay as long as it's not in a spot where there is a lot of movement.

I repaired the crank/gash in my BMW 325 iS bumper with a two-part product from 3M. Some sort of epoxy, I guess. The paint shop should have it. I got it from the high school body shop class I took. Later the bumper cover (about 3mm thick flexible plastic) fell off the car and I ran over it, flexing it considerably. The filler/epoxy was still in place as was the paint (no flex agent PPG base/clear urethane) with scratches. Good stuff! You'll have to apply it and then sand it down with 600 grit wet sandpaper.

Hey try JB weld, Overkill loves it. He's on the JB weld wagon as of right now but why not post to him and ask him what he thinks?
