NAS Roll Cage Rubber Repair?

What is out there to repair any pealing/cracking to the rubber on NAS ST roll cages?

I am already using 303 as a protectant... but need something to fix some of the older wear and tear.

I've seen a piece repaired with what looked like black silicone caulk. Whomever did the job did a great job texturing it. Maybe someone out there has a section that severely damaged they would donate for practice.

I think that was specops from a few years ago. I don't remember the rest of his screen name (1515?) but if you search you should find it. Used roofing material if I recall.

black silicone

I did some extensive repair on my NAS cage. I used black silicone. It takes a while to dry and the color wont be perfect. it will require "texturing" to make it look good. It does seem to hold up well over time. I fixed tears and missing chunks on the roll bar rubber with it.

There we go. It looks like specops linked to the post I was talking about earlier, too.

I've always wondered if sanding it down and rhino lining it would work.

I thought I read something recently about using FlexSeal (from the TV commercials). It is offered in gallon cans now and I believe the company claims you can pour it into a mould. perhaps it would work for the padding.

I need to recreate some of the chunky foot parts of my roll cage padding. I will report back on results if I try it.

Contact RN. They had access to the pieces. Its not like its rocket science. Even Jeeps do something similar.

They had access to protective Rollcage wraps.

Yes people have had some luck using roofing material along the feet bases and to seal up cracks and gaps in the cantrails. It will never look perfect but maybe it'll protect the steel tubing underneath and look alright from 20' away.

Please document the process. I've seen lots of folks have bad feet that could use repair. Good luck!

I used some synthetic roof sealant to fix some deterioration on the cantrails a couple years ago. It looked good at first, but it wasn't long before it started peeling off, so I got a set of the roll cage paddings from RN to cover it.

I've seen Plast Dip or Anything Foam and some of that texture paper - like you use to get the grain when repairing vinyl or leather. It looked pretty good.

I've been using this product for repairing those unibitonium plastic parts....along with a bit of plastic welding.
