I'm not sure if this applies here, but some of the fiberglass parts I've been asked to bond have had a somewhat small "contact patch" where the glass meets the metal. In these cases it is necessary to build a flange to mount the part. I like to have a minimum of a 1/2" wide contact bead all the way around the part, and maybe more in the case of a quarter skin like that. I might post a mini-tutorial on the subject if there is any interest.
