X-S1 grip rubber tear DIY repair

The top edge of the rubber grip area developed a small tear and was beginning to peel so did a repair using Sugru.

Sugru is a mouldable glue / clay which will cure in 24 hours to a very hard rubber. It comes in many different colors. I had a red one opened so I used that one. I should have used a black one but I can live with the red accent - kind of a Nikon theme here.

You shape it and attach - it will turn into hard rubber in 24 hours.

You can see a small tear and beginning to peel open.
