I recently put a rebuilt engine in this truck following failure, and am now tidying up “odds and ends.” I have a junkyard header panel (what the cosmetic grill and headlights bolt to) from the local “Pick a Part,” and it is 95% intact; a definite improvement over the original! However, there is a small piece on the new one that’s missing that I overlooked when pulling it. As a consequence, the passenger side headlight is secured by only 2 of three points and wiggles in use.
So my intent is to use adhesive to patch in the small part of the original that isn’t damaged. To do this, I need to know what plastic it is, and what adhesive to use. So far, I can say:
-where broken, it has “granular” appearance, like cast metal might if broken.
-Red-hot fork tine produced minimal melting when applied to plastic
-When exposed to flame, burns with small, yellow flame. Just barely sustains combustion on its own. There is some black smoke, but not overwhelmingly sooty. Not much of an odor; just a hint of “sweet, chlorine-ish” scent. (Like chloroform, only way less so.)
