    This is a suggestion only. I haven't tried this on any bones myself.
    Baking soda accelerates cyanoacrylate glues so use Zap or soda. Zap Zip tends to yellow the glue.

    Rubbing baking soda in and dripping the glue on should work, but it'll tend to froth and mound up, might need rubbing back.

    If u get epoxy resin u can also get fibreglass powder stuff u can use mixed with the resin bulks it out to take up space would b able to wire side ways across the brain cavity then fill in from the back to create soild surport also get surf board resin not boat builders unless u like yellow and if u fill cracks at the front covering them with tape saves heeps of sanding

    I think bonding the head together from the inside and leaving it as a stable Euro mount would be great. A wonderful head with a talking point and the story behind it.

    Just clean it up.. Fill the brain cavity with car bog and couple of self tappers in unobtrusive place.. Should hold it sweet as..

    I am a hunter, I hunt without apology or guilt...
