Sorry guys, Im sure you have had enough of me already but basically for £100 this will be my learning and training experience, so if it fails then I havent lost alot if it works out then I have a rib worth not much anyway!! lol
So I thought I would have a look at this leaking seam today. Effectively where is has been left out for years flat its just come unglued, I was able to just peal off by hand the front protection strips, handles, protective strips. Then it came to the patches over the seam again the black cover came off really easy, then the white rubbery strip over that. The seam is just gone. there is a blue (very flimsy) inner strip which is hardly stuck at all.
I also removed two massive lumps of expandable foam.
For any reason (appart from badly attempted repairs) should there ever be expandable foam in the chambers??
I have pulled the seam back to the chamber wall which has also come unstuck.
As I have gone this far, I am actually contemplating completely removing the tubes altogether as they would need re-doing anyway and I think it may be easier for me when it comes to regluing.
On the main seam, is it worth me PVC welding the seam after I have glued the inside seam and before I glue the outside cover?? I have access to the equipment.
Is there a resto section on here?? dont expect a quick job as I am currently restoring a VW beetle which has to take priority right now.
