2 of the 4 rear leaks? Gone, but only 2 of them.

the 2 remaining drips are most likely due to the fact I skipped some rear seams, and was stingy on the other rear seams to conserve the 212 - yes, I knew what I was doing. So I have to crawl back up there, but at least I am confirming the 212 works.
Could you possibly give me the specifics about the materials you used to fix the leak? I've heard a bunch of input about different types of sealants but since I'm doing the exact same job as you did I'll definitely try the same. Thanks!!

I am sold on sono-lastic NP--1 and can order in any color but any caulking not if but when you get it on you it loves a plastic bag (like from the grocery store) or baby oil will get it off of your skin before it dries (don't ask for details)
If exterior don't leave a bead of caulk? Wipe it down down smooth. The paint going over it will crack and peel at every caulk joint so no more than what you need and a spray bottle of baby oil and water mix to spray your small putty knife or your middle finger once you get used to using it properly will go along way. I can guarantee you if you use NP-1 on anything you don't want to take apart but end up having to? You will muck the joined pieces up before it comes apart.

Thanks so much for the reply, I can't seem to find anything to patch it with, NAPA has larger pieces of aluminum for 25.00 guess I'll just get one of those..

bring your snips to the dump with ya next time and cut a side panel of washer, dryer, dish washer door, something of that nature will make a good patch.

Has anyone used FlexSeal or comparable product on their roof seams/rivets? ...or perhaps a roll on bed liner?

Best bet is to clean the roof thoroughly...then hit every seam with OEM grade automotive Seam Sealer...then a couple of coats of a good elastomeric (rubber) paint. Preferably white.

Thanks Tango... Are there any particular products that you're familiar with?
