Banding for radius

We have panels going on a radius wall. The panels were ordered 5/8" mdf slotted on back through and through and worh veneer holding them together. We have added another layer of veneer and now need to band all edges. Do we need to cut the top and bottom veneer on a radius and stick after panel is attached to wall or is there another way. We tried on scrap piece banding first but the panel to bend is slotted as I said and broke the veneer.

without photos, drawings, sketches, etc. it is pretty difficult
to visualize your project and what issues you are having.
(for me, anyway).
knowing the size of the panels and the radius you are working with
plus some photos would help a great deal.

It's not great of a radius. Panel on bottom is 67 tall 37 wide. Panel on top is 37 wide 32 tall. First pic is a rough of a top and bottom panel. Second is a rough of back of panel that had to be that way to bend. Kerfs.

Bottom of same puc is a rough of radius. I need to band edges. The sides making problem is the kerf sides.

in my feeble mind, I am thinking of filling the kerf voids with
Bondo autobody filler to make a smooth surface.
then hand cut the veneer oversized to fit the curved edge.
after it is glued in place, trim with a trim router and laminate bit.
there is no way the veneer will bend laterally like that.
to save on material, you can join short sections of veneer to fit the radius.
the tops and bottoms will be hard to see once installed, so I could live with
the joined seams.
how will the panels be mounted ?
