I would consider using an auxiliary fence over the top of the existing fence (assuming it still locks into place securely), then use shims as necessary to bring it exactly parallel to the blade, as suggested by knotscott.

I use a variety of materials for the various auxiliary fences I fit to my rip-fence. Basically any manmade board will do, as long as it is stable – I even use cut-offs from plastic covered particle board (1 1/2” thick countertops), that is really flat and stable, it also provides a really “slick” surface for the boards to ride along.
