    It's fixed!! The Super Glue didn't work like I had hoped so I went a different route. You can see the crack highlighted in orange, it hadn't broken off but wasn't far from it. I cleaned up the Super Glue residue and used a product called Rapid Fix to strengthen the area.

    And finally, the housing is epoxied to the panel, wood trim attached with push washers, pull handle reinstalled and window and lock switch module reattached.

    The unrepairable housing has been repaired!! This Fast Fix is a great material to have on hand for repairs like this. It's a bit pricey but far less than a replacement panel would have been. That little trim piece that had to be removed to access the screws had me stumped for a while but once pointed out the rest kind of fell in place. Door works fine and you can't tell it's been repaired!
