plastic repair...its like bondo but made for plastic...u can also use panelbond to fill in the hole and then sand off the excess..then put putty over it to hide pinholes, then spray plastic adhesion promoter and prime it

plastic welding would hold better depending on the size of the hole... but in most cases you can push the pieces together and kinda melt them back and then do your body work.

if its cracked on an edge get rid of it dont even bother trying to fix it itll be a waste.

Pretty much what the above posts are saying, all depends on how bad and location of the damage. Sometimes it is just better to buy a new one and upgrade inthe process
