Re: leak in renault trafic

Hi Jeroen, thanks for the update.

Glad the weather was in your favour.

The Tiger Seal can be used to adhere the guttering, however, it does take a day or so to fully cure (it depends on ambient temps, so at this time of the year, you need to allow it a bit more time).

I would recommend using some duct tape to hold it in place whilst it is setting, then be careful not to pull directly onto the guttering when removing the tape a few days later.

Using the sealant to reattach it, also means that any pinholes exposed when it fell away, will also be plugged.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
