Default CARF Rudder Repair

Just got my first CARF. Great flying airplane. However it appears that the wood spine that holds the hinges has come loose from the skin. There is rudder control, the rudder does work, but I believe it will fail if not repaired soon. Even though I can see the movement between the skin and the wood, I cannot see how one would get any epoxy in there to make the joints reliably solid again. Sure, I could get in through the little slots and drip it down, but there is no way to ensure the epoxy is getting where it needs to go.

Has anyone been through this that has a reliable, minimally invasive, cost effective method of repairing this?
