Old adhesive thoroughly cleaned off.
Emailing Laurence at XS ribs again to double check.
Don't want to mess it up for save of waiting a day or two.

Anyone know him and could give him a call to verify??

Glue arrived today and so a waste if I have got the wrong stuff!

cheers Dal

I buy fabric for repairs from the suppliers of fabric to Tornado & XS and they recommend hypalon glue for the PU fabric.

Dave
good to know!
Also from Laurence at xs
Yes it is fine, you need to do the Acetone prep and as soon as it is dry apply the first coat of glue, ie within seconds

So going for it, as soon as it warms up.Have drizzle today !!

cheers Dal

The whole point of it is to cover the leading edge of the seam tape for it to be of any use

I put them over the leading edge of the seam to give it exactly that protection. The picture is one I found on the interweb and I hadn't noticed it doesn't cover the seam.

Makes you wonder why they bothered!

what he said! My boat is buried in the garage so hard to take a pic but it looks just like the other pic only it covers the leading edge or the tape. Was £30 or something like it to get it done and was well pleased with it.
