Question Bumper Cover Repair

Ok, sorry for reposting, but I'm not getting any response on the General BMW Forum, so here goes....

The Bumper Cover on our '95 Z3 has come loose. I removed all the fasteners and have it clear of the vehicle. Many of the mounting slots have just torn, but looks like the plastic can be rejoined/repaired. Any recommended techniques/suppliers for repair instructions/materials? This is basically intact (other than the split on the underside) and shouldn't even need paint, as the repairs won't even be visible, so looking for a minimally invasive restoration here. Thanks in advance.......

Maybe a non-standard repair of using small metal washers and bolt it down?

I would probably do that if it were only one or two mount points, but have too many torn, and really want this to be a close to original appearance and functionality as possible.
