Is the B3 Radiator Repairable?

I epoxied a piece of copper pipe in place of the plastic top radiator hose spout that broke off my 200q20v's radiator after I laid on top of it to get to the steering rack end of the high pressure hose.  It held up from fall until the following summer, when I replaced all the cooling system.  I soldered a piece of wire onto the pipe to create a raised lip.

Jetta. It never held, no matter what I used or did.
