Plastic repairs

Has anyone had any experience with one of the Plastex plastic repair products for fixing bodywork and such? I need to make some small repairs to my rear bodywork before painting and would like some advice, if you would.

I suppose I could just use epoxy, but I'm not so sure about it's compatibility with this type of plastic. Is it ABS? The bottom of my tank actually says "Ascerbis"!

I've also found links to something called Three Bond Plastic Repair Kit. Is this better, worse, or exactly the same thing? Is there something better than either?

Due to my situation I see no reason to spring for an expensive replacement piece of bodywork, and the repair wouldn't be very big. It's all getting painted anyway.

Any advice is appreciated.

You might also want to look into purchasing a plastic welding kit from Harbor Freight Tools. It is not too expensive and is something you can use over and over. MCN did a nice write up about it a few months back and it got good reviews for an inexpensive set up. I don't even need one but I've been meaning to get one. Its that tool thing Devi talks about, can never have enough........... :-D

Thats pretty funny stuff. So that plastic welder from Harbor Freight works pretty good huh. I guess I'll be heading down there this weekend. Just need to figure out what to tell the wife. I'm going to the grocery store honey should work......
