BTDT with the epoxy this summer.
Severe heat loosened 2 of the clips on mine.
I scuffed and clean the metal , and then used liberal amounts of epoxy.
One side held , the other didn't. I tried numerous times but always popped
My solution was to use some "PL Premium " construction adhesive. Sets up in
about an hour, as with any glue job.. needs to be clamped.

It's been 6 months and it's still up there.
Hot test has passed, now we try the cold test...
