    Thank you for the tutorial XXX-er. I got a bit overzealous picking up my freshly tuned skis with my FTP mitts on and gave myself a repair opportunity. I pulled the Aquaseal out of the freezer (had fixed a hiking shoe previously), warmed it, peeled back the slice with a toothpick and placed AQS in with another toothpick. Iím happy with the result.

    sounds like you did it right, It looks like you also put something over the AQS while it cured to give the fairly smooth finish

    every out door person should have a tube of AQS to fix their stuff

    Fix your own fucking gear with Aqua seal eh

    My tent says 40D silicone polyester on the website for the floor.

    There are some abrasions that let light through but itís not a full breach. I think I can paint over them with some adhesive and call it good.

    Am I right to think I should get the seam grip +sil or will regular AQS work? Silicone caulk from Loweís?

    Also, can I dilute it with everclear? I donít have a need for a pint of toxic mineral spirits. I only need maybe an ounce of total solution and probably apply 1/10th of that.

    Also my rain jacket is the same material as the tent so if I have extra proper adhesive it could be handy.

    Thanks in advance!!

    I can confirm that regular AS does not stick to silicon treated tents, but the +sil version works great. Not sure how to cut it. I'd just go full strength.

    Regular 100% silicone caulk sticks to sil poly/nylon. Dilution with mineral spirits is great for seam sealing so that it spreads nicely, but you can use it full strength too. It will just be gloppy.

    Mineral spirits is necessary for deep cleaning bike chains prior to applying queso, so you'd be all set for that.

    I can tell you aqs/ shoogoo/ seam grip are all just liquid ureathane made by Gear aid in various consistencies depending on app but I got no idea what your situation requires, so maybe post up whatever you do

    mineral spirits AKA white gas does an amazing job of cleaning a chain, every speck of dirt or grease will be gone
