05 Dolphin Basement Door Bracket Repair

Somewhere I saw some pics of a repair where some of the plates where the lift struts attach to the basement doors were separating from the door and fixed. A few of the plates are starting to separate from the doors so I'm seeking some good ideas for reinforcing how each plate attaches.

The photos are good, if it is just the plate.

But my coach, it is most all of the Styrofoam in 4 doors and about 50% in 3 doors and 30% in a couple more.

It is going to take major re-work to get them fixed. I will try gorilla glue first, before I take them apart.

But If I have to take them apart, I'll get rid of all Styrofoam and glass in wood ribs, then put foam back in between the ribs.
