I used a couple of times a conductive liquid/paste that's usually intended 
to repair the heater traces on the back window in cars. It comes usually in 
a very small glass bottle, liquid is bronze colored and the aplicator is a 
small brush... this has worked for me the two times I had to repair a broken 
CoCo keyboard mylar "cable"... you have to work fast though as the liquid 
gets tacky very fast.

One of such rear defroster products can be found at
