I'm a longtime subscriber to AR, but new to the forums so please forgive me if I've posted in the wrong place. 

I recently pressed in new ball joints into the lower control arm of my project car.  I tore the rubber boot slightly and since it's a sealed ball joint and I cannot just r/r the dust boot, I'd like to know an effective way to repair the tear.  Any suggestions?

Actually, you don't really have to tear it up. There must be another way.
