Driver side body panel by wheel.

Coming down the 101 over some rough freeway this panel came off. Held in place by rivets that broke and glued, epoxy to a couple of metal brackets. My advice would be to check, add rivets and make sure the bond is secured to the metal brackets. Click image for larger version

Scary how little holds those on. Our RR came loose a couple years ago, but didn't dearly depart the coach.
After some solid prep work with a scotch brite rotary pad to the back side of the panel I used a good two part epoxy to secure the aluminum brackets back on to the fiberglass and re riveted it back in place. Earlier this summer both self tapping screws fell out of the passenger side black/grey tank panel ahead of the rear axle. Dang near flew off.
Both brackets that hold the rear lower valance also came loose last year. Same fix was required.
Something to check for sure.
Glad you were able to recover the panel.
