Default Repairing 240 B-pillar Interior Trim Pieces

My B pillar trim cracked when doing some interior work on the car, I thought i remembered seeing a thread where people were recommending certain products and methods for repairing them. Anyone got a link or suggestions?

+1. I posted about having purchased Volvo Classic pieces that pretty much exploded on installation and if the knock off pieces somebody (I don't remember who) makes are any better.

Got no replies except one about having someone chase down good pieces out of salvage cars, which is a non-starter for me. 30 year old plastics that are crappy to start with: not a gamble I'm willing to take.

I would think there might be a suitable loctite product that would stick to this stuff decently.

I dont see any material identifier listed on the part.

I would guess its ABS? I'm sure someone around here like RWC or Roy might know.

Based on it's feel I actually think it's PVC but this list may prove useful.

Regardless, I would expect some form of glues would work fine... the challenges are that the stuff is now SO brittle that you almost end up robbing peter to pay paul on the repairs.

You may need to take a look on the inner section for the molding stamps. This might not give you anything though... but it's almost certainly a thermoplastic.

I don't know what they have nowadays since I haven't looked at the site in a long time. Eastwood restoration may have something to glue plastic interior parts together. I used to get their catalogs and they have been helpful with restoration stuff over the years.

JB Clear with a small piece of sheet metal behind the crack for support. At least, that's how I fixed some map pockets before I found a clean set.
