Browsing through the topics I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for regarding rivets and avoiding leaks
. On our 76' Boler
the previous owner put sealing goop (the kind you use on the roof of a house) on every single rivet on the roof (not below belly band however).
Wondering how necessary this is? I'm asking because soon I'll be sanding everything down in prep for painting
the whole egg (Brightside woot!). I've looked at many pics of other eggs and cannot see any evidence of others doing the same thing with gooping their rivets.
So, once I've re-painted - should I re-seal every rivet on the top half of the egg again? Hoping it doesn't look unsightly as currently the goop is a bit discoloured and looks bad.
Or... any alternatives suggested?
Thanks so my everyone
PS: I used Tech Steel for the first time last night to fill some holes and cracking. Anyone else have good results from Tech Steel for minor fibre repair?
