Has anyone else tried this super glue/baking soda repair on plastic panels?

The story:
My last Honda had the same "lightweight" plastic body panels as my current S'wing and I was always breaking or cracking the plastic clips that hold parts to the frame. Yesterday I took off the front trim panel to tighten up the windshield because it was really squeaky (using the metal Givi windshield brackets leaves an unfortunate plastic on metal scenario. I had to add some rubber washers to prevent squeaks.)

Anyways, I tried so carefully to take the panel off as gently as possible and found I had cracked one clip anyways. Ugh! I thought I'd try this super glue and baking soda trick from youtube to repair the cracked clip and it seemed to work well.

Superglue alone doesn't hold much on plastics using but this baking soda seems different, like cement. I've used epoxy in the past and find this superglue method faster, cleaner, and easier to sand/file down any extra material. And not as much smell.

Does anyone have experience with this or know how well its durability compares with epoxy like JB weld for small plastic repairs? Is it worth the trouble or should I stick with epoxy? These plastic clips can be delicate and I don't want to repair them more than I have to.
