fiberglass hardtop repair question

On the side panels there are 4 bolts (on a matel strip) that attach the side panels to the quarter panel. The metal strip has delaminated from the side panel and I am trying to figure out the best way to fix it. Last year I gorilla glued it back in place, but that didn't hold. I would rather not drill it and fix it with small bolts & nuts. Has anyone had this happen and have a good fix? Thanks for help & ideas

I used gorilla glue. Worked well. I sanded the mating surfaces for better adhesion. I guess you could try epoxy.

Good luck...
