Dinette bench side trim repair

In my Chateau 31E, the side trim piece on my rear dinette bench came off. It is attached using screws that are screwed into the particle board, which is a poor design, especially since people tend to sit on the edge of the bench.

When the screws ripped out and mine came off the first time, I reattached it using bigger screws, additional screws, and glue, but it came off again. So I decided to use bolts that go all the way through. It isn't the prettiest solution, but it's strong. I used bronze hex-head bolts so it doesn't look too bad.

For the upper aft bolt, I cut off the end of the bolt flush with the nut so it wouldn't dig into the seat cushion.
