slrrls2000 is on a distinguished road

Here are photos. The last photos is the crack. About a 3 inch crack, not bad.
Once I pushed the wall back out the the crack disappeared, almost.
My thoughts were maybe lay down a sheet of glass in the interior to cover the entire area that bent, including the crack. Then just paint over the the crack with some resin.
But since you said that about the oil can affect I bet I'm going to have to lay a sheet on the inside and outside.
I can do it my way or ask for some more experienced ideas.

What do you think?

Another item I'm hunting are diagrams on where the sheets string through the hardware. Well, correctly anyway, I guess I could take a stab at it but I may put some tension in areas that are not meant to be. Provided I am correct in calling the control lines sheets.
I'm learning.

Your contender would be similar to the challenger in cabling, sails and lines would it not?
