They say when you have nothing good to say say nothing......

Crickets....


Seriously not bad, it's hard to work with that stuff if you've never done it, it kind of has a mind all it's own.

I too hope it holds for ya... otherwise were going to have to start a fundraising campaign to get you a new roof!
I make some killer cupcakes!

I'm just curious. You have used a product that should hopefully seal the leak, so could you use a different product on top of that to smooth out for better appearance? Or will that also be a problem with them not attaching to each other?

That is my concern.
I don't know if it is compatible with other type resins or if it requires their specific type of $$$$epoxy.
I will use my tractor over the next few months and see if the patch stays attached.
If it does stay fixed, I might try some additional repairs.

Consulted Messick's for the price of a new roof:

ROOF (OUTER) 3C581-71512 $1,074.54

Interesting enough they have one in stock.

I can understand why the OP is trying to fix the damage and applaud his effort to try and fix it. If it works long term, I'm certain others will need and appreciate his effort.

You should be able to sand it down, but it's on the roof so who cares.. Only people that know about it are you and the select few here. Lol.

My uncle had to do some patch work on his grandson's front bumper.. He ended up drilling holes and lacing everything together with zip ties before using the fiberglass putty mix. After it was all dried, he cut the zip ties, patched the holes and sanded it smooth. After paint, you couldn't even tell unless you look at the back of the bumper.
