I'd avoid heat bending. There's no way to get it as accurate as you want it with bending. Can you do something by fusing plexi brackets on the back?
-Position the new tray
-fuse brackets on backside where they would not be visible.
-epoxy the roughly 2mm gap between the old tray metal and the new tray brackets.
-This is assuming you are trying to flush mount to the old tray material.
The nice thing about plexi is you can start with 3mm material, and fuse it into massive bricks or whatever you need.
