Contact cement should be fine. Make sure you use many thin coats, rather than one thick one. I prefer Barge, buit not for any specific reason (maybe it just looks more industrial. Dunno.)
I know what you mean about Bostik 2402. Impossible to get here in the US, it seems. I might try giving my builder a call one of these days, and see if he can get a small can to me or something. If he can, I'll post it here.
As a substitute, the Clifton hypalon adhesive (available from NRS - Northern River Supply? A rafting company, anyway) seems to be very similar to 2402. They sell a 4oz can for $22, and a small bottle of accellerator (not really necessary) for $16. Go to http://www.nrsweb.com/
and select repair.
