I like the wood braces held by the cam straps and bar clamps idea.

I have generally used clear packing tape to keep broken edges in alignment but I found the hot glue gun idea intriguing. Have you had any difficulty getting the glue residue off or had any trouble with glue residue interfering with epoxy curing/bonding?

I couldn't tell what your patches were but I assume they were fiberglass. I have generally used peelply on aramid patches but have not done so with fiberglass patches since the peelply soaks up some epoxy and 'glass is so easy to feather. Do you feel you get a better result using peelply over 'glass or do you use it just to save time?
