Lexan Body Repair

Hi all. Long time lurker, just started posting recently.

I've raced modern 1/24 cars for about 4 years now and I am just getting into the vintage scene. I've picked up a few cars that have lexan bodies that are for the most part intact, with maybe one of two small (less than 1/4") tears in them. What are the popular methods for making a repair? For my regular race cars, I'd use a nylon packing tape, but considering that these bodies are 40 years old with 40 year old paint, I'm curious if there's a better way to fix the tears.

I did a seach on the topic and didn't see anything posted already, but if I missed something existing I'm sorry for the exta post.

Thanks ahead of time for any ideas.

Morning Kazooracer, bigtone is right about this tape it is reinforced and i have been using this type for nearly 50 years and my anglia from 1968 is still with us due to this tape, the last lot i bought was from S,C,D Chas Keelings place in Bradford, try S,C,D Homepage on line and see his lists Cheers Keith.
