It's either Locktight or JB weld that make a 2 part epoxy made just for plastic.Don't geth the 5 minute one.The poor one is a clear/yellow color.It never sets up well.
The good one is very dark in one tube.This stuff stinks bad but works great.

I bought on the internet adhesive JB WELD American production. Very suitable for repairing broken threads, and bonding of metals, after drying has a hardness of steel. Certainly has more strength as epoxy resins and polymer recently becoming more available but with the advantage that the faster bind.

I tried regular JB weld.it didn't bond to the plastic very well,after it set up,I could bend the plastic and it would peel off it.The plastic epoxy seems to eat into the ABS and bond better.

ABS is a cyanoacrylate adhesive glue finished first, then do a rough surface, where is to be glued - better to keep the resin and then the resin and fiberglass mat, in his spare time he used to work for scooters missing items from scratch.
for example, some pictures

if this is for a mounting post (small repair) or a crack, I would suggest Q-Bond. it is a super glue like deal from hell ! I have repaired the ABS Body kit on my van, broken tabs on my vans dash parts, ect with GREAT results !

Here is a youtube video for it, well, a few actually.

Like it shows in the second video. . . This stuff is easy and STRONG and if I remember right , I paid $35.00 for a kit that had 4 bottles of the glue and 4 bottles of the strengthener in it. I use it a lot and still have half left, it does not take much. Best of luck.

P.S.
When you repair it, take pictures of how you did it and let us know how well it worked.

It truly is an amazing bonding agent.
