Henry's Tropicool, and how I learned to dislike it...
Greeting Bus Peeps...
So, I did what a lot of us do. I put Henry’s Tropicool on my bus roof....and I’m really regretting it!!!
Let me explain:
Before I did the roof with Tan Tropicool 887 I didn’t have any leaks. I did it just as insurance for future leaks. Thinking I was stacking the deck in my favor.
Now, fast forward 2 months:
I am now to this day chasing leaks!!!
Seems to me that these buses are put together in a fashion so that the water sheds like a roof shingle.
Now that I have closed all the routes the water used to take with the rubber roof coating the water manages to find its way into the bus at weird spots.
Lots of weird spots!
My Thomas MVP has two “ribs” they run fore to aft and now that just hold water on top of the bus and it gives it the opportunity to find ways in.
I have mopped every seam trying to exclude the water , but it’s slow going and frustrating😜
Maybe I’m dense or maybe I just don’t know what I’m doing, but I thought I’d put this out there in hopes that my experience might be useful.
