advice on repair

Hi, new to this forum and new to owning a RIB. I need to do a bit of tidying on the tubes of my rib (Avon searider 5.4)

Any suggestions as to where to get supplies etc.

Basically I want to re-glue some reinforcing/rubbing strips that have been applied to the sides of the tubes

Any help and advice appreciated. either direct or through this forum.

Would recommend that you e-mail who posts on this forum as "nick".
He is Nick Gilbertson who knows "eveything" about tubes.
