Tack the parts together at approx. three spots.

For Reinforcements you can melt a metal grid into the material.

The grid may not been seen after melting it into the material.

Weld now the crack about the hole length by tacking. Push the heated tip deaply into the plastic.

Repeat tacking with a distance of 2 mm about the whole length.

After welding both sides, the surface can be refilled using welding sticks. The welding tip has to stay in contact with the surface to melt it.
