I try a few layers of fiberglass resin, But the bad thing about it is it wouldn't be flexible so It might make it a little harder to put it back in the car.

I did it on mine to repair the holes for my visors, the foam board on mine and had torn around the edges and was hard to recover like that. So I put a little mat and resin to repair it. And it didn't melt mine. Ive read on here that there is 2 types, Polyester and epoxy is what I think they are. Ill check and see what it was I used and get back to you since mine didnt melt at all.

Ployester may melt some if they are poly, but epoxy wil not. It is very inert, stronger and has a higher more flexualr modulas strength. Pretty inexpensive for the little amount we are talking.

Epoxy is what I would use. You can buy it at most b oaters outets, or online. Just do s search for laminating epoxy, or any 2 part epoxy. I would get one with a 1 to 1 ratio - very easy. JUst take any old plastic container and mix equal parts together and brush on with old or cheap paint brush. Sets in about 25 minutes to full cure in about 24 hours average. If this application will reach temperatures higher than 150 degress, I would go with the poly resin.
