I looked up the price of that stuff, and it seems to me an dubiously expensive solution to the problem. That tape costs more than the twelve tubes of Conti Aluminum cement I purchased not that long ago, and I get a fresh glue when I use those. I'm not sure how much I'd trust rebonded tape. Gluing tires is basic mechanics stuff, and it's really not messy with some fairly minor tools.
