I know there's a way to glue the Monogram rear slicks to "mold" the two parts together.

Suggestions?

They make adhesives specifically for vinyl. I seem to remember that the glue in a water bed repair kit would work really well for gluing vinyl tires.

If you are meaning the slicks with the molded in wrinkles then Testors liquid cement will work . I used it on my Ice T slicks and then sanded the seam away.

The glue in the old-style CV joint boot kits will work too.

Interesting........Having had a waterbed for over 30 years, patching was a common thing. I always thought the glue smelled like the glue for repairing bicycle tubes. Im gonna go see if i still have a patch kit!

Had a waterbed too, not that long though. I always thought the patch kit glue smelled like PVC pipe glue, has the same cold feel to it too.
