Broken tabs on the dash cover

I've broken the tabs on the dash / center console on my 2011 Wranger.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix them?

Thanks!

I tried epoxy. Didn't work. I always forget about JB Weld.

I used PlastiFix on the fairings of my motorcycle and it worked like a charm. It's a bit pricey, takes a little work and some patience but basically you create a mold from another tab and bond it to where the broken tab should be. I was skeptical but this stuff was awesome and much cheaper than buying new fairings and getting them painted to match.
