I've just acquired a 13' Boler that is missing a few pieces of seam tape. Most of the rest of the seams are sort of wrinkled so I'd be interested in buying some.

Did you ever buy the tape?
How did it turn out?
Any pics?
Thanks.
Sue!

I am surprised everyone is having such a hard time with this.

If you want to stay true to the original here it is here:

Good old 3M two sided foam tape. Its the same stuff used when the Boler's were made. During assembly they brushed the outer side with talc (ie baby powder) to get rid of the "stick". Or do what I did and just paint over the sticky side. I installed 3/4 inch wide tape but go for the 1" wide stuff as it covers better.

Or.....buy the one sided 3M foam tape (this would be my choice). Its cheaper too:

It also creeps up on Ebay from time to time

Thanks Kurt, I picked up two rolls of double sided at Home Depot and did mine last week. The talc idea worked perfectly. It really brightened up the interior, however now my ensolite looks dirty in comparison. I'm considering doing a sort of faux finish with a sponge and a very light cream colored paint to cover all of the ensolite. Might look cool with the other changes I am making. Although if it doesn;t look good I guess I am screwed. Anyone ever paint ensolite?

Hi: Jonathan... My brother painted the entire interior Ensolite/seams of his '72 Boler. He pulled the tape off then filled the seams with PAINTABLE Latex Caulking. Used wet paper towel to stipple the caulking like a wrinkled skin effect, then painted the Ensolite with a good quality Acrylic Latex Kitchen/Bath paint tinted...what else but "EGG SHELL". This kind of paint will breath and if the surface is washed/prepared properly you will have a good bond.

How did your brother remove the seam tape from the ensolite?

HI, I have a 85 U Haul, the OUTSIDE center seam isn't looking good at all but is still sealed. Would what you have work in this application? I haven't looked around here - Millersburg, OH.US. Just ran across your post and thought I'd ask. Jan
