Hello Chris,My baby has a factory installed Turbo Tail.When I bought it, it had a tear on the top flat portion but the tear did not go all the way through. I have been searching in vain to find a rubber bumper repair shop that will repair and refinish it for me but short of replacing the part can you suggest the best way to prepare, bond the tear and what type of adhessive is best for that type of rubber.I was thinking of getting the same type of glue used by tire repair shops but I was also thinking a black colored glue for rubber materials would be better to blend into the original color of the rubber lip. I plan to use a fine grit sand paper to blend it in, maybe emery cloth.Please let me know your thoughts. As always your guidance is much appreciated!Jim
