Will it stick to the plastic well? That's the biggest problem I'm having.

I'm going to try to build a channel out of ABS that the hinge can slide into. The ABS weld glue /should/ be strong enough, and that way allows me to remove the screen.

You could place a thin plate of metal under the screws like an oversized washer.

Not really. I've been having migraines the last week or so, so I haven't been able to get much done.
