When i ordered my stuff from Henshaws I also ordered a sanding disk that goes in a grinder from there site. It was far too coarse and the moment it touched the tube i blew a 2 inch hole in it. I cut a slit in the tube big enough to slip a few fingers in. then primed the inside of the tube and cut a patch that overlapped the slit/hole about 30mm, primed the top side of the patch. then when dry applied a second layer of glue when this was tacky covered the patch with polythene and slipped it inside the tube, when in position I slowly peeled the polythene back putting pressure from the underside of the deflated tube.
I re inflated the tube and it was fine. Then I covered the outside of the tube as mentioned in my earlier post. as long as you sand it back well the repair shouldn't show through the recovered tube.
