Body Rubber Coming Up

The rubber is coming loose from the body of my K5 II, under the front right dial.

Is this something that can be repaired?

You could do it yourself with a small amount of Elmers Rubber Cement... Works great for this kind of thing

Black RTV gasket maker, from you auto parts store. It's amazingly strong, black, and works up to 500 degrees f. Seriously though, it's black, strong, and any extra looks and feels just like the rubber grip. You can barely chisel it off if you make a mess.
