Why would you glue that front fender together?

Why not just tig it?
a few reasons:

i made the bracket by pressing it over a piece of bar stock, the radius of which didn't quite match the fender. but that's all i had. there was good contact with the fender only in a couple spots.

the fender is from, i'm guessing, a moped and it's paper thin. my tig skills weren't up to the task. a welder friend who's opinion i trust said it would have been dicey to weld without ruining it.

i figured high-strength epoxy and carbon fiber should work. it's stronger than steel on a per weight basis.
