Got a little repair job I need to do and discovered that JB Weld don't cut the mustard. How do you guys make it stick for real?

ABS pipe cement or bumper repair cement, probably the same thing.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

+1 on the ABS pipe dope.

The tupperware is made of ABS plastic, so make sure that you get the ABS pipe dope, not the usual PVC pipe dope.

Chemically reacts with the ABS and actually melts/welds it.

WingMan that is a sharp looking wing-put up some pics!. Does the ABS stuff work for the missing tabs on the front fairings? At least one of my broken tabs is still under the screw. And what if the tab is missing? Was going to form one out of bondo then shape and have paint touch up done. Any better ideas?

you can reform a missing tab with the abs glue and abs shavings. Takes some time but works well. The abs cement will melt shavings mixed in with it. Make a form around the missing tab with clay then apply the abs/shaving paste. When the chemicals evaporate it will be as strong as the original. Careful of fumes and dust making shavings though. You can also melt the shavings in MEK and make a paste that way. Very simular to bondo. Build it up and sand to shape.

Make sure you get the hard to get Black ABS glue which melts and welds the ABS not the Yellow which is just a glue and works on the large surfaces of a pipe fitting but is not suitable for small parts or cracks in ABS plastic.

BONDO WILL NOT HOLD! what you need is a 2 part adhesive made for ABS plastic. check your local body shop supplier. 3M makes some real good stuff. the stuff I used required a special dual plunger gun to dispense but I'm sure they could steer you right.

The good that I do is never remembered..the bad is never forgotten.
It\'s easier to ask forgiveness than ask for permission.

Like I said you're unlikely to find it at your local hardware store, all I've ever seen is the Yellow glue.

No problem-not too far or I can order-just use some ABS pipe or pipe fittings for shavings? Does it shape like bondo when dry-ie.sandable? Need to remove all paint first?
