I would think you'd be fine as is, as the areas you're working on are not holding air, so you just need a good mechanical bond.
What is causing that dirt colored discoloration, and can that be cleaned up? I'm assuming it's not dust (as it appears); hopefully it's not oil? That would make it tough to glue.
Thank you for the response! And yes, I hardly sanded the tubes, so I think those are good. I was just sanding the attachment points more heavily. I am glad you think I will be alright
And that discoloration is from the previous owner, I believe he tried to glue them back on but was not using the proper glue? I have scrubbed the hell out of them with mek trying to get it off, but its still there. I figured the glue he was using just stained the fabric. The tech from Defender said some discoloration that I cant get off is ok, so i hope so! Fingers crossed!
