[b]Hi there all this is my first post.
I have a crack in the front on body kit extension to the right of below the FOG light of my BF2 Fairmont Ghia. I don't have much money unfortunately and need a VERY cheap way of repairing it . What is a cheap affordable type of plastic adhesive and How do you detach the part and any further tips on painting/ preparation it appreciated. As to replace the part it costs over $650

Mine is cracked there as well, got it repaired by panel beater with pastic welding. Cracked again going down a steep drive and scraped the bumper. I guess its a weak spot in the spoiler, I priced one a few years back at over $600 from Ford to get a replacement. FTG were selling them around $200 at the same time but did not have my colour. Give them a call they may still have them.

Thanks TWese, its not weak spot i don't think as I have owned the car since new and Boy the amount of scraps on that part that is lower under the Fog lights. One scrap too many i say on a sharp angle driveway , where driveway met road. I was In Sydney for a 2 week holiday years ago and in a carpark i regular used had decent drain dip across car park. I must have hit that 12 times in two weeks as you couldn't see it and you forget. LOL. it didn't crack amazing. thats on top of the occasional scrap over a speed hump or something over the years. LOL. I got a few ideas on how i can reglue it. I have used Selleys Liquid nails a couple times LOL. If I can get it off i can do a much better kob and try some different adhesive. I will do a youtube search see if any videos.
