What kind of plastic

Does anyone know what kind of plastic the side panels are made of? I have some cracks up the side I would like to repair but want to use the right exopy or abs glue.

TPO is the plastic type Teryxosaurus. It and Polypropolyne are the hardest plastic to repair even with a good plastic welder. Very high in petroleum. Grind it with 36 grit around the repair area.

i know a guy who went to our local dealer,reminded them how we supported them,and told them to sell him parts at a fair price and he will purchase his parts from them, if not he would take his business elsewhere,he is on this forum and hi might hit this post,anyway they sold him the side rocker panel for around 30 bucks.when we do our engines we use this dealer for gaskets and other parts they have been cheaper than anyone. they still dont like me and i still dont like them but they are movin parts and im gettin them cheaper than i can get anywhere else.and they started stocking engine parts we regularly buy.just sayin they might work with you, i was very suprised.

Just wanted to update, the repair went well, I should have taken pics. I had 2 major cracks from the bottom all the way to the gas tank filler and another top to bottom at the back of panel both were attached by about 1" of unbroken plastic. I used Lepage quick set epoxy for rigid plastics and fiberglass tape all on the inside of panel, now need to be with a few inches to see the repair. Working on some nerf bars now.
