Amiga and C64 case plastic... How to glue?

I have a few bits here that are, not perfect tbh!

Mainly stripped screw holes. The odd cracked case half etc. I have probably asked about this kinda thing already years ago...

I was thinking about using:

Plastex
2part Epoxy
Loctite Superglue.

I have usually just gone straight for the Loctite and it has worked for very small jobs. But screw holes, is there a good method for this? I could do the bodge from my youth which involved finding slightly larger screws but tbh that is not ideal and ends up being non-original.

Also have a Breadbin c64 here that still holds it original working board but, sometime in its past repairs were carried out. Whoever did this managed to strip quite a few screwholes out

Would like to sort this stuff out once and for all!

The fun of old retro stuff lol

Find some thin pieces of plastic, preferably the same type as the case, stick them in the thread, fix them with a bit of glue, and cut off the excess. That should make it possible to create a new thread with the original screw, although it will be slightly offset from before.
