I recently noticed tears in my 07 as well, and on very good advice did this easy intervention, apparently well known in the racing community - simply drill holes at either end of the tear. That stops further tearing. Much preferable to welding on braces that affect the crumple zone/safety for collisions.I have a tear in each side of my engine bay on my 07 FJ cruiser. Do I need to try and fix this or is this just a cosmetic issue? No other problems (doors open just find and everything else works).
Not a great pic but you get the idea:
