looking for epoxy or glue....

what can i use to bond plastic and wood together end to end that will hold up ive got 2 plastic panels and theres a roughly 6" gap where i can see painted metal, i want it to be a solid 1 piece panel to cover the metal that i can wrap....the part wont have much stress besides the pressure of pushing the mounting clips into the holes in the metal....

You need to describe where this is going and what it's on, 'cuz I can't picture what you want to do......
How thick is the wood, how thick is the plastic, what kind of wood, what kind of plastic, where is this finished assembly going?

So there's a 6" gap you want to fill between the seat belt connection near the top of the pillar and the bottom of the pillar, is that right? So it's not really structural, and it doesn't need to be removable right? It also needs to be shaped correctly.
Why not use fiberglass resin over fleece? Then you can shape it correctly and paint it the right color when it's hard, or cover it with vinyl.
