maybe try heating and air foil tape. It is sticky on one side and it holds it shape. I used this stuff everyday at work and its pretty strong stuff. Also they have different thicknesses

I would say the foil tape will work you could even put 2 layers. I used it on my fiberglass hood on my snowmobile and the plastic belly pan because the 3 expansion chambers get real hot and I have not had any problems for years.

Default foil tape

The tape we use is called UL181 and usually has the red writing on it. They make different kinds if yo can try to get the kind with red writing on it. This type has more thickness to it compared to the unmarked Foil tape.
