I've used Krazy glue for a lot of different kinds of plastic, with great success.

I did not have luck with crazy glue like Loctite super glue ultra gel control and did not have luck with e6000.

I'm still seeking a glue that will bond and stay clear

Plain white glue is quite strong, provided this won't be getting wet.

 No way that this will work on plastic!

I would have to go with either epoxy resin, or superglue. The Epoxy works well in that it can grip to smooth surfaces, and provides a strong joint, it can easily sheer off though. The superglue would probably be more successful, the nature of the glue creates a capillary action that helps the glue to spread into joins and cracks.
