Has anyone successfully repaired the upper headlight
mounts for eurolights?

I know this sounds like a question specific to my 200q,
but I know that the UrS headlamps use the same stupid
design- if you're not careful, it's easy to snap off the
cantilevered plastic top mounts of the headlamps.

I need to find an epoxy adhesive or something similar
that can bond this plastic, as well as a suitable chunk
of plastic that I can bond to the top of the headlamp in
order to use the OEM headlamp mount screw to hold it in place.

Any suggestions as to how to best accomplish this?

I went to the FLAPS and the best I could find was 3M plastic
trim adhesive- the epoxies I've found all specifically said
they don't work with polyethylene or polypropylene plastics,
one of which I believe the headlamp housing to be, unless it's
some sort of glass-impregnated nylon composite.
