I called Vic and we discussed the problem. Vic talked me out of disassembling and releading the panel. I got some epoxy from HIS glassworks. I put the panel on a 60° angle easel and I used this stretchy silicone tape called ZIP System Stretch Tape. It's tenacious and stretchy and holds the pieces together pretty well. There's still an offset ridge between the two pieces of glass perceptible under fingertip, but it's pretty small. I can't get the ridge to completely go away with hand pressure, so I'm going to live with it. What's troubling me now is that I can only tape one side, the smooth side. The other side is so rough and gravelly with fused junk that I'd never get tape to stick, or the glue to absorb into the crack from that side. Can I glue on the taped side, in a few places, so that it stays where I want it to, leave it dry for a week or two, then remove the tape and finish the rest of the glueing from that same smooth side?
