Also use Fenwicks tent cleaner before treatment... to get rid of grime and salts.
CNot a problem Gary....and dont worry...obviously the less runs the better.
But just wipe over the tent gently with an old T shirt afterward to remove/blend them in
Try and do a panel at atime.....or a sq meter.
Obviously read the instructions before hand.
Cheers mate, I'll watch it when I'm on the laptop, hammers me photos battery, watching it on me phone. We get abit of dry weather, i'll put the tent on front, have ago at doing it, might video it, give yas all a laughHere you go mate.
I try to use masking tape either side of the stitch lines....keeps the seam sealing neat
Cheers, i'm a member on UKCampsite, not been on there for a while.
Hi, I bought the tent on ebay secondhand, the bloke i bought it from, said he bought it off a bloke who planned to use it as a fishing tent, but it was unsuitable. When i received it, looked like it had hardly been used, almost new condition.Gary,
In the '70's to reproof P.U. nylon it was reckoned that you had to clean off all the loose waterproofing, clean the cloth (although I don't remember what with), then respray. I never used to bother, if it got too bad - it got slung. Question: Did the tent manufacturers offer this as a service and if so, do they still (even if it is subcontracted)?
