[DML] Fascia Repair

Hello All,
     My front fascia was damaged a bit when I hit a deer and I need 
help to repair it. When I am driving down the road (sometimes when 
it's parked as well) one really can't see the damage, but there is a 
split just behind the grill. When I hit the deer, the grill flew off 
and landed about 50' in front of the car. I picked it up and put it 
back on the car. However, it is, now, only held on by 2-3 of the 
rivet holes, instead of the 8.
     If you see the damage, it is a real testament to the 
durability of our car. I have had a number of people tell me that I 
was lucky. I agree with them :). 

     I can't really afford to take it to a body shop, and the damage 
is in an area that is unnoticable when you see her. I know there has 
to be a way to repair her. I am a model builder by trade, so I'm 
sure that I could do it myself, I just don't know where to get the 
proper adhesive, and other supplies that may be required to fix the 

     One body shop that I went to estimated the cost of repair to be 
$300-500. And that was to do a job that didn't make it too perfect. 
Y'know the gray paint not matching exactly and still showing 
some 'seams' since the grill is going to be covering the repair 
anyway. But that was just the "estimate". He wasn't certain how much 
it would really cost. And you people know how repair personnel love 
to charge for working on a D, eh? lol. I've worked on mine and they 
are a pain to work on sometimes, so I can understand some of the 
costs. Mainly the time.

     Anyway, I need to know where I can get some adhesive and 
anything else that I haven't thought of, to fix my fasia. Can anyone 
please help? 

     Thanks in advance.
