Over the years I have repaired any a tub but must admit to never getting a perfect finish when re glueing the base tape. What do people find works well to stick it back on?

I used a form of latex, I think fairly close to the natural latex from the tree, milky white water based. Also used on the outside base tape if it was bare cotton. This dried to a rubber.
One of the contact adhesives should do. Mount the tyre and pump it up, so that the pressure helps the tape to stick.

I've tried Copydex some time ago, I can't remember how strong it is. The normal patching rubber solution can also be used.

There is also liquid latex sold in art shops for making moulds etc, but I haven't tried it.
