Default Cracks in Club Car body

I have a 1989 club car with several cracks in the body. They are in the upper corners of the battery compartment where the seat rests. Does any one know what type of material the body is made of ? Plastic, Fiberglass ? I've been told mine is plastic but not really sure. I want to repair these cracks but not sure what material/product to use. Thanks.

I THINK that prior to 1993, the DS had plastic front body panels and fiberglass rear body panels, but I am sure someone with more info will correct me if I am wrong . . .

My 87 DS is just like you described, Steve.

Wow, I took another look at my cart. The front and back panels are definently made of different materials just like you guys said. The front is more soft and flexible than the back section and is certianly plastic. The back is harder and more rigid. I'm gonna get a fiberglass repair kit to fix the cracks. Thanks for all the help.

My 91 has a fiberglass rear body. I know because I cut holes for tail lights. I might also add that my cart also has these same cracks.
