    GL used to occasionally auction off tent repair kits in wooden crates. The crates contained needles, thread, grommets, installation tools, multiple types of materials to make the repairs with & other odds & ends. There was no glue IIRC, but you could supply that from external sources to effect the necessary repairs. This method should repair most vinyl or canvas problems if you can source this kit.

    Use HH-66 glue for vinyl and use "Tear Mender" or "Barge" for (untreated) canvas.

    X2 on the HH-66.

    I made a repair over two years ago on a vinyl cargo cover for my green M101A2.
    It’s been baked in the summer sun and frozen to -6.
    Driven at freeway speeds for hours.

    Repair is still as good as day one.
