I looked a few weeks ago and no luck on the symbols. If I had found them this would have been an easier task.

Those are identification for recycling, they tell the processor what it is so it can be treated appropriately. Durable goods tend to not have these marks, as the likelihood of them landing in the recycling stream is very slim.

I used PlastiFix

On a plastic seat pan. I reinforced it with fiberglass mesh. Not knowing the type of plastic, I can't say for sure it would work, but I'd sure give it a try. You could make an almost invisible repair on the outside by adding the mesh on the inside. The stuff really works well.

It does look like a great product. Their Youtube video is pretty interesting, too. Unfortunately, it doesn't work with polypropylene, but if I had an ABS or similar plastic to repair I think it would be a good choice.
