[Oeva-list] Welding plastic?

The good news: our Dodge TEVan arrived today, and after changing the
receptacle on my 240V outlet we were able to start charging. Drove
it on the 9 mile roundtrip to REI and all went well! This thing has
lots of cooling fans (even during charging), and a bit of controller
whine so overall it's noisier than my 1993 US Electricar conversion
(DC motor, as is this one).
The bad news: when loading it on the carrier in Maryland, they
bumped the water reservoir for the automatic battery watering system
and cracked it. All the water left-- it's a small divot, and I would
like to have it repaired. Is there a plastic welder in Portland?
Any other ideas? This reservoir is a custom item made for Dodge-- I
don't think I could find a new one, and I wouldn't want to price one.
I hope to visit the Wayland Juice Bar soon, and plan to attend the
next OEVA meeting.
