Pygmy those are as nice as the rest. You could have a small side Hobby/Business of custom patches for those of us with holes. I like that you can tell what they all are. Nice artistry.

Patch's Sealant???

What is used around the edges to seal the area? I have some Rips that need Sealing as well as camouflage. Thanks for the Insight.

I used vulkem 116. A bead around the cut or opening being patched, a bead around the rivet holes, patch perimeter and for overkill I put some uninterrupted beads in the field of the patch. Nothing is getting in via those patches.

Yes, I'd like the wolf, my door panel got hit while driving, I pulled over but the other driver didn't stop!. I NEED TO REPLACE 1 maybe 2 panels and fix deep cuts in the side of the skin, the bear would maybe cover the damage.

How much would you sell a wolf / Koyote patch?

Hi I'm sorry I didn't get back in touch, I'm having trouble uploading photos, and the Airstream is not road ready, do you travel far to do these repairs? Airstream is in Snohomish currently in RV residential park.

I will try again to upload photos.
Regards
Katoline

Love the patches, especially this one!

Do you have a before pic of the area? I need to install a porch light and was curious about the hole needed.

Thanks

The porch light was existing when I bought the trailer. I patched it to reinforce and seal where the PO had over cut. I suggest buying the light you want and using cardboard to cut a template of the hole you'll need - test fitting with the light. Use vulkem 116 to seal.

5/32 Olympic rivets ($20 for a bag of 100) from Vintage Trailer Supply and Airparts Inc. Rivet guns ($20-40 depending on quality) from Harbor Freight and Home Depot.
