Default Front bumper cover repair

Hello again
I need to do some repair work on my bumper cover. Is there any specific material they use on this? Primarily doing crack repair and mending the four mounting sections that hold the bumper on.
Thanks

You'll need a special epoxy there to bind the plastics to the inner bumper mold as it's a hard plastic that doesn't react with epoxy

Any details on the epoxy?

I think I used JB plastiweld and another epoxy specifically for polyethylene plastics.

After I applied some plastiweld I think I found out that it might not hold the bumper and mounting strip together. Hence why I combined it with something else
