Hello again, I just removed the nasty seam tape on my 1980 13' scamp and I noticed that some have used some type of caulk to fill the seams. What type should I use and what paint will stick to the elephant skin? Thanks!

Hi: My Brother used D.A.P. paintable Latex Caulk...two layers to fill seams then dapple with a wet paper towel or an excess piece of "Elephant skin" to match the wrinkles. Then paint with any good quality(Scrubable) Acrylic Latex ("Egg Shell")Interior Paint. Alf S. North shore of Lake Erie
