I just used JB Weld Plastic/Fiberglas Epoxy on mine and I am pretty sure I can break the box before that bond.

If you want step by step instructions, I could probably gen something up for you. Keep in mind though, you will likely need to buy a bunch of "stuff". Resin, sheet fiberglass, release agent (vaseline would likely work) etc. I need a picture of the damage if you want me to develop something. Also need to know where the damage is located - top, bottom, side, etc. and how long the crack is.

Not a crack. The upper right tab that the bolt goes through is broken off. Iíll get a pic soon.
