This is a thread for folks who have done their own Repairs. Looking for successful/in test mods/repairs.
 
From stitching to adhesive failure...whateva. I've seen Barge  All purpose TF cement on BF Ted's blog,
and here: http://www.vibramhoofpads.com/products.html so I gather it is an appropriate item for the
repair shed.  RE KSO seam probs: material or stitching failure? Can one prevent this by sealing the seams - ie shoegoo?
Sure Foot stick on Sole Patches (another BFT tidbit, or Tedbit...) are interesting...and  lead me to ponder
Has anyone hacked their own Trek/Bikilia-type grips/pods onto their old ffs with re-soling material -ie VIBRAMŽ 4mm Cherry
or something similar? Anyone else punched vent holes in their soles? Gaiters?
Hope this gets a ball rolling for all the RedGreenMacGyvers out here....

Yeah, there's a leading ftp:// in the link that shouldn't be there. Smiley

I've had a pair of KSOs for almost a year now. I've put them through who knows how much punishment! ONe day wile rappelling in them not to long after i got them i noticed near the middle of my right big toe the rubber was separating fro the fabric. Being a little bumbd out i hastily applied super glue. i guess i did it wrong or to fast because it didn't work to well, (almost glueing my finger to the inside of my ff Grin) well after months of hiking, climbing, rappelling, swimming, jumping, walking, running, biking, spelunking,canoeing and anything thing else i felt like putting them through, they have suffered a few seem bust, easily stitched back together and the original hole got bigger and a few places were rubber was separated have popped up. i decided to give the glue one more chance so gave it a try a few mins ago and it seems to be holding pretty well (not wearing them). I know its not the most ideal repair method but I'm really sorta sad they're almost dead but excited for a new pair!
