Here is a pic of the Aldridge one fitted to my sprint
What I did do as it is an absorbent material, was to cut channels out of the back and then line with builders silicone. I did this to where the drain holes are and where the water is likely to flow.

I have half an original one but unfortunately I think what is buried in the garage is the fan side.

I think you would struggle, certainly with the contact adhesive I used.
You haven’t got long and only one go at it.

I have an early moulded original, though it's taken from an 1850 auto. It's complete, but some of the thin bits between holes are fragile...
