I'm glad your bonding worked.  A lot of times the area to be bonded can't be 
marred by scraping or sanding. (finished appearance, etc)  In your case, I 
guess appearance was secondary to to getting the stuff bonded.  Kim said the 
Virgin variety of Polycarb was a special order item in most all places.

I've just tried this. It works!! The bond is as good as any I've seen.
I simply roughed up the surfaces with emery paper.

Many thanks,
