Sealing a few small leaks

Anyone know of a product like Creeping Crack Cure that dries faster? I have a few Olympic rivets that are leaking and I want to try sealing them rather then replacing them. Five rivet leaks is not bad after replacing 600 or more rivets. I like Creeping Crack Cure, but it takes a while too dry and it can take a few applications, but it's easy to apply.

I have used 3M Windshield Sealer with success, it is clear and dries fairly fast. Adheres to the Aluminum well. Good luck, leaks are joy....

I always carry a can of this with me. I purchased the can at the factory store, and they'll fill (and refill it) the can for you there for just a couple more dollars.

That stuff is great for around rivets, windows, doors, etc.

Creeping Crack Cure

I know a few plumbers in the prone position who could use this!
