You can sometimes build up the plastic using a "spin welding" technique.
Take a chunk of plastic (a part tree from a plastic model usually works
and put it into a drill chuck. With the drill running moderately fast
are definitely recommended), press it against the spot you want to weld it.
Friction will melt the two together.

Success depends on how well the two plastics will bond together.
Some plastics will not bond well together.
