Default Need advise - 3DHS Slick 30cc landing gear crash

I had a very bad landing in the field which caused the whole landing gear compartment to crash out.
I wish to get some advise how to fix it.
As far as I understand, I need to reconstruct the 3 front ribs. I thought to copy the shape from the remains, then build the front part with some side extensions, then to glue them to the sides of the remained ribs.
Then I will rebuild the landing gear mount (the wooden part) and glue in place.
I also see that there are carbon rods (5mm) enforcements - I will put new ones.

Sound reasonable?

I am adding a few pics - of the crashed area and one of the ribs as prepared before cutting from light ply.
