Hood Pad "Repair" Question

The front part of my hood pad is falling down. As you might guess, it's not a clean separation from the hood; instead, the material in the middle of the pad is separating. I really don't want to go to the expense of replacing the pad. What I'd like to try is simply knocking off any loose pieces, applying 3m 8090 liberally, and pushing it back into place.

Will this hold or not?
