How to repair a cracked and broken Ne q'wa Xmas ornament.

These are reverse painted, so the paint is on the inside. I would glue it, then remove the top and pour in PVA Carpenters adhesive, swirl it around and then tip it upside down the drain. Test the adhesive on a small part of the paint first.

Glue the parts together with Super Glue GEL. This is easier to apply.

Vinyl top removal

Talk with a panel shop or a vehicle upholsterer but as the vinyl is normally glued on with contact cement the I suspect that there will be paint damage. It may help to use a heat gun to soften the vinyl as you go but do not get too enthusiastic with the heat as it may damage the paint underneath . Which ever way it will be a slow job

Installing quarter glass

First remove as much of the old adhesive without digging into the paint as you can-do this with a utility razor knife-this is a hard job to do. you can leave a small amount on the opening. next get a tube of automotive window adhesive. It will come in a caulk tube-run a bead about 3/8" tall and wide-be very carefull this stuff is nasty to clean off-gently push glass into opening-not to hard-use masking tape to hold in place for 8 hours and do not slam the doors with the windows up as this will cause the adhesive to blow out and cause leaks Cheers Denny

How do you put a front license plate on without drilling a hole in the bumper?

Two really powerful magnets to clamp the bumper like a vise. License plate just sticks to outside magnet. Never had the nerve to try it myself, I live in a neighborhood where the rig would get robbed.

It is a very nice car you are driving. I can understand the hesitation you have for drilling holes. Stormsure is a good strong adhesive with flexible properties, but I'd suggest sanding a small portion of the bumper first. Adhesives stick best when there is no clearcoat, paint, or primer to reduce bonding.

If it was my car and I was wanting to put a license plate on my car... I would fashion a bracket that clamped over the bumper. It would be a flat bracket that could slide between bumper and hood. It would be padded with a soft rubber, so it did not damage the paint job too much. It would take a considerable amount of time to create something like that, but it would be removable and have very little trace.

A lot of people go to salvage yards and find replacement bumpers for cheap. Whichever bumper is in the worst condition is the one to practice drilling holes and sanding for adhesive. If you decide to go with a permanent mount, practice first. Only when you are sure the job looks factory or better should you do the job to a nice piece.
