I had some cracks in the fairing on my motorcycle. I used an
automotive fiberglass repair kit from the FLAPS that included 
the resin and cloth.  It seems to be holding up well.  

You could/should reinforce the joint with a short piece of 
metal strapping. Maybe do it in layers -- cloth and resin 
only to join the pieces, then a second layer that adds the
metal reinforcement under another layer of cloth.
