Fixing hard top around the hinges

I took the top off the Jeep last night and decided to fix the liftgate hinges. As I lifted the gate, the hinge must have hung up because instead of it hinging, it broke out the fiberglass. I've worked with fiberglass for years, but I was wondering if anyone has done this fix before. I thought about cutting the other side out and glassing in hard points on both sides and just bolting straight through to the inside. It would be easier than trying to restore the original set up becasue I can't get in to the back side to glass. Any thoughts?

thanks,

Jud
