Bonding glue for front side panel

My driver side panel broke its bond. This one is on the driver side. There are two angle brackets bonded to the inside of the panel. I tried Gorilla Glue and it did not last. First time using that product for anything.

What has worked for others? Thinking I might use fiberglass strips and resin.

Agree on Sikaflex 221. Remove all old adhesive, Clean completely and apply Sikaflex and hold in place for a couple of days.

Can also through bolt through one of the angles-- a "headless" bolt (thin head with allen wrench hole) is not obtrusive.

I would recommend BOTH.

When I had that panel break loose I cleaned the old adhesive off with a wire wheel then laid fiberglass over the bracket and onto the panel. That was 4 years ago, since then no issues.

That is what I was thinking.
