They even have plastic rivits that look like they'd do a good job of fastening the frp to wood if more help was needed. http://www.kemlite.com/pdf/6450_lasco_tech.pdf. They don't however mention exterior use. They have a link to find distributors.

While I was in Minden I felt the top of my trailer and the top of an aluminum skinned trailer next to us. My roof was barely warm and you could fry an egg on the aluminum one. Don't use contact cement to attach it. Mine is delamintating in places on the sides so I have big bubbles that come and go with the outside temp. But, the main reason I used FRP is that it is hail resistant. We all replace our roofs every ten years or so around here.
