- Many thanks to the following people:
Dave:Thanks for your idea of having to drill new holes for the rivets offsetting the old ones and the idea of small beads of caulk including caulking the topside ONLY of the belly band-I'll tryan acrylic sealer. At this time, I am deciding to use the same black vinyl in the channel.
Benny K.:I thought I read that somewhere about using steel wool and now I will have to do double duty. I have the green scouring pads and Brasso. I'll buy the Never Dull wool this week. Your explanation of how to install new rivets was great too! The seam gap on my trill varies from 1/4 to 3/8 inches.
Ed:Your description of what everything inside the seam area looks like is absolutely correct!! I have the same problem and thanks for the ideas of filler suggestions. I thought I might try plastic wood, but now I am not sure it would be a good filler. I'll check out the Marine 2 you mentioned.
Kurt:Lucky you for having only one loose rivet. I have stopped counting how many I have to do
/I had to problem with you asking questions to others members-it helped me out too.
TomA.:Now I have a better understand of the trailer's construction. I'll have to check into what BLIND rivets look like. You are quite knowledgeable about these Trills!!
I had thoughts about going outside and working on the Trill
It's in the low 90s. I think NOT!!-I'll do some cleaning in the ac=house. Have a wonderfull weekend and keep cool.-Mary Lynn
