Default repair a broken grill shroud?

Not a good day, hit a turkey with my new truck and broke the shroud around my grill.
Does anyone know how to repair this? Can I rough the area with sandpaper and epoxy it? If so, what kind of epoxy or glue? Body shop says $400 - $500 for new piece and to paint to match.
I have removed it from the truck and have been able to fit broken edges together and immobilize for glueing and splinting if necessary. Any helpwould be appreciated!!!

Insurance not an option, since truck is paid off, only have liability and deduct would be more than replacement.
Yes, it came with leather and I love it!!

post a pic of the damage
i work in a body shop lol

some things are just not worth fixing depending on how bad it is

you should be able to two part epoxy it back together or plastic weld it dont use fiberglass as it will eventually crack again
