Wall reinforcement advice - what cloth?!?

I've got a fiberglass bubble top on my van that is slowly drooping to one side. At 34yrs old, it's down about 1/4" on the driver side. I tried propping it up,
and got back 1/16"-1/8" in places. (exterior pic)

The interior pic shows the trough that is flexing. I'm planning to lay some cloth along the length of this trough and up the side a bit to reinforce it and hopefully stop the droop!

What cloth to use?!? I have CSM and 1708 from a previous repair.
I have enough 1708 to do two layers - possibly three. Is that gonna hold here?!? (And would a layer of CSM first help the 1708 to grab better?)
