I have LC heater box cover that is damaged 

 

Can anyone advice what sort of adhesive / glue they have used to repair these boxes as I dont like my chances of getting another one

 

I have looked at the resto articles but cant find what they used to patch up or fix / repair /strengthen the covers

Fibreglass repair kit will do the job perfectly.

 

There are repro heater box casings available but they are not cheap.

I've got a slightly damaged one taking up space. Might not be much better than what you have but. Cheap.

As said easy to repair if can work with fibreglass, have done so. However I have a few on shelf in the shed if you wish to purchase.

Yes, but looks like out of stock ATM.  https://allmusclecar...heater-box.html

$540.00 :wtf:   I'd have a go at fixing what you have before shelling out wads of cash for a new one or even a really good S/H box unless it is reasonably priced.
