32 Trunk Lid attachment

My trunk lid left hinge has become detached because of the extreme cold in Minnesota. It looks like the two mounting pads were held together by adhesive or maybe resin? Anyone have an idea as to what might have been used? I have attached a couple of photos. It looks like the fabric that covers the hinge base went between the mounting pads before being attached.

panel adhesive would work. If that's fiberglass you might want to make sure it will work with fiberglass. there's probably a cross bonder for fiberglass and metal(?). I wouldn't adhere it to paint so that's why I say that. Ask your local jobber but make sure he shows you something that says it's a panel adhesive that's ok for fiberglass and metal. Some jobbers will talk out of their backside if you know what I mean.
