It can be a pain of a job. No harm in getting a proffesionals price. Then if it does come off its his problem to sort it.

From his price deduct the cost of the glue, thinners, mek, brushes, acetone, sikaflex, rubbing disks etc and then make your decision.

Trust me I've been down this route.

I had the same problem and tried three times on my own to repair the rubstrake. I've had great success with patches and other tube repairs, but the rubstrake is a whole other beast. It's well worth taking it to the professionals - plus, as you said, if it comes apart again you have someone who will take care of it.
