Get some big cable ties. Drill some holes on either side of the crack. Feed the cable ties thru and send it.

Price a new inner guard from Subaru. You'll be reaching for the drill and zip ties very quickly.

When your out there dilling and cable tieing your car this weekend, make sure you drill 1 extra hole. Drill a clean sharp hole about 4-5mm diameter at the very end of the crack. This will help to stop the crack from propogating.

An old trick i learnt during aviation lessons. We used to take a cordless drill (ni-cad LOL) and drill holes in the cracks of the wings of our Cessna trainer aircraft back when i was doing flight training. Sometimes it worked. Sometimes it didnt and you would see a large crack with many holes drilled along its path...

Got a cai filter in there ...
I'd probably have a go at glueing back in line than using sikaflex etc to cover it with a bog applicator or something or buy a 2nd one from the wreckers
