I'm ok with it ... letting it dry today and I'll fix it. I think it was saying 'you should have used some brass strips behind it the first 3 times you patched it there!' :D

Got the brass strip mounted behind the joint as I should have done long ago. A bit of bodywork on the outside and I can paint ... again.

May I offer a tip I learned from an incredible customizer?

Get some 3/4 oz. Fiberglas mat (R/C Airplane fusalage skinning) and cut strips about as wide as the area your reinforcing. Soak the Fiberglas with crazy glue and apply to the inside after scuffing the bare plastic. Multiple layers makes it even stronger. Surprising how strong, and thin, the bracing can be. Excess can be filed/sanded smooth.

BTW: That incredible customizer was Liars club president Tony DelVeccio. Great person whom left us all too soon. Thanks for what you shared with us.
