    If it's acrylic, you can buy a new sheet of acrylic and place over the crack and "glue" with plastic adhesive. There's a really good adhesive , but I forgot the name. Maybe others know if it.........

    you have to use weld-on...depending on the design of the crack..designates which number weldon to use...but usually people use weldon 4 or 16..

    dont' even try to silicone the crack...you'll just be asking for trouble
