See this link: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=3246

I have repaired many cracks in ABS plastic by sanding away paint from the inside, slathering ABS cement (plumbing cement) onto the inside of the panel as well as into the crack, applying ABS cement onto a small piece of ABS, and clamping the ABS patch over the crack. It will chemically bond to the cracked panel, creating a repair that is stronger than the original piece. Most of the time the repair is invisible.

ABS Cement, you mean the purple stuff ?

The purple stuff is actually "primer" The actual cement is clear. While primer is a good idea to make a good clean surface, use it wisely, it stains.
