I have a fender hardshell case that has a broken hinge on the back. The abs plastic is cracked. Anyone know of a way to repair that?

I had this exact problem once (but on a Jackson case). I cut out the hinge and trimmed the edges of hole so it was nice and uniform. Then I made a plastic plate that was larger than the hole, with about 1" overlap. Next I measured and drilled new holes to mount the plastic plate and hinge and used a combination of epoxy and pop rivets for assembly. Worked like a champ.
