I would suggest Araldite or another 2 part epoxy resin. If you drill a very small hole at the inner end of crack, it will stop the crack spreading further.

Drill a hole, fit a bolt and large washer, use some silicone to cushion as you tight it down. Will help secure it..vibration is the enemy..super glue will work to glue the cracked part. Doesn't look good but it works.

Drill hole to stop the crack and reinforce it...

Lots of methods, nothing is going to be pretty..

My solution would be toglue plastic patcheson both sides with a through-screw to secure them at least until cured.

Duct Tape........

Had to do it.....

If you do any highway driving at all or a lot of 45 MPH + driving, I would keep an eye on the crack to make sure it doesn't spread. If it starts, it's not going to stop. I would hate to see anyone driving down the road and have that come off. And if does nothing to you, it could hit another car, then you would have to pay to get that fixed....... Might as well look for a used shield somewhere for $50 or so and not worry about it.
