should be able to put a few drops of super glue in there. Hold it for a min and should be done.

I'd fibreglass it. Get a auto body repair kit. Mostly resin mix and glass matting. Some body filler. Bit of paint it would look like new.

Use this. Bondo Epoxy bumper repair syringe kit 280 - Read 1 Reviews on Bondo #280
I used it on my rear cowl and the mesh and epoxy make a great repair.

In addition to actually repairing the fender it is also essential to address the reason it cracked in the first place. In this case I'm willing to bet that when you installed the stainless steel brake lines you did not reinstall the two clips that retain the original lines just above the calipers. Without those clips when the bolts were tightened down the fender was pulled further out, stressing the plastic which failed at the weakest point.

All you need to do is insert washers the same thickness as the clips then do the repair.

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.
