Kia Sorento - Epoxy for cracked tail light - willm

Don't know if this is fixable? It doubles as reverse light and indicator.

There's plenty of youtube vids showing how to fix cracked lens's with epoxy, but they're more for cracks or small chunks.

There's a section missing along the left side, there's just folded over tape for the border in the thumbnail. As far as functionality of lights go it's fine with no naked bulbs showing through, it's not at all stable though in that bottom corner.

While I'm here, how do I fix a small one inch crack in black plastic bumper and a roughed

up uneven bit.

Damage to both came from tortuously slowly reversing into a pillar.

Don,t think you are going to make an effective repair with any glue/epoxy.I would find a local windscreen company and ask if you can have a strip of their clear plastic gaffer tape that is used to hold windscreens in while they bond to car body.As for the bumper,I think I would leave it alone.Probably need to come off to make a good job of it. As the indicator lens is clear,and the bulb Amber,there should be no problem at Mot time.

Thank you.

Which of the two do you think has the least give and would hide the cracks best?.

Nothing is going to hide the cracks.You are going to need a new lamp.
