How to fix

This weekend when I was disconnecting my battery while packing up I notice this. I taped it with duct tape for the time being until I get a plan of action on how to find. Luckily we aren't expecting rain til next week. Click image for larger version

I'd just use some liquid nails, or silicone adhesive of some sort. Be careful not to squeeze it out above the faux diamond plate. It might not look the best then. Then go back with some clear silicone on the top edge, to ensure it's sealed up good.

And maybe finish it off with some Flex Tape.

Do like I do when "bedding" a rifle action in a stock. Put down a layer of tape (heavy 2" wide vinyl Pipe Tape is my fav.) right along the edge of the body where the fake diamond plate ends. Any glue squeezed out will only stick to the tape. When set/hardened just run a razor blade along the top edge of the fake diamond plate, enough to cut through to the level of the tape, and then pull up the tape. Excess glue will come off with tape.

DO NOT use Gorilla Glue. This stuff expands as it cures and unless you can clamp it well it will leave an ugly seam. Liquid nails would be my choice and brace it well with a piece of 2X4 flat on the fake diamond plate and another piece wedged in between frame, propane tank mount, or whatever is available. Maybe even bracing against tow vehicle bumper and CAREFULLY backinng up until brace is TIGHT against panel.
