Here's something not mentioned. If you can get some superglue to wick into the material it will harden and strengthen the original material.
I might do this as well and is some thing to consider. The WBGO hood is glued on with some sort of soft putty which does harden but they also come loose. If that happens I'm going to cover the area with fiberglass hardener then a layer of fiberglass cloth and more hardener.
Your hood is already made of fiberglass. Just add more on top of what you have for extra support and control of the vibrations from driving.
Agree...fill original holes and then add more fiberglass to make a "pad". Then you can use longer and wider screws.
I would also use large washers to help distribute the clamping force over a wider area with less likelihood of crushing the fiberglass.
This is what I did. Been rock solid ever since.
