Exclamation Fiberglass Roof Ground Plane

Hi All!!

So I wanted to move the antenna on our fire depts Tanker to the roof of the trucks cab but the roof is fiberglass. So I need to make a ground plane for the antenna. I did some searches and found that I can put sheet metal on the inside to do this. But I wanted to see what you guys think of using Aluminum HVAC tape to create the ground plane? Or would copper tape work better?

Also I am assuming I will need Thick Surface NMO mount. Anyone have an idea how thick the fiberglass normally is? The truck is a Peterbilt Cabover.

Any help would be great!
