D90 rear loadspace mat repairable?

My loadspace mat (aka cargo liner)opened up along the rear left fender sharp edge a while ago. Me pulling on it as I was working on the rear speaker box/cage made it even worst/longer crease.
I was thinking of fixing it using rubber cement and cutting an inner tube to add backup material under the matt/along the edge. I did not plan for a ($200) replacement, might do it at some point, just not now so I'm looking for a medium-term solution.

Am I out of my mind? AB's website lists the load mat as "rubber black" but states that the material is actually polyurethane. So I'm not sure if the rubber cement will actually work.

BTW, the mat is at http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/STC4629G.cfm

Yeah, contact cement and pond liner works great. The contact cement is a lot tougher than the rubber cement.

I used black silicone to fix a tear/hole in my front mat with good results thus far.

If you are not picky and don't care about looks... I have a roll of heavy duty mat in my garage.

I've been meaning to throw it away, but it's too heavy and the trash collection Co. will not take it.

You can swing by my place and take all you want.... Have you seen the mat in the back of the '03?

I believe I have mentioned this a LONG time ago... and forgot to remind you.

Pedro, I did not see the back of your Disco and will be interested in some of that HD mat material (at least to protect/put on top of the existing mat when I haul stuff! ).

I carried the "fix" last night. Unfortunately, I did not realize that the rubber cement does not dry (at least quickly). So.... I added cement on top of the mat too to try to put something inside the creases. Not a good idea..... I'll look to see if I can put something on top of it to "dry" it.
On the bright side, the inner tube / mat seems to have bounded really well and the repair looks decent.

a quick spritz of black spray paint on the rubber will disguise the repair a bit too.
