Yes, Kelvin, my adult sons showed up to help dear ole Poppa. They put strips of reinforcement fabric rather than my requested solid run fore/aft. I was glad
For the help.. As they neared the bow, they got "better"...but the stuff is pretty thick.
I brush applied Enviro-patch(EP) to all roof penetrations after cleaning and sealing everything. A layer of EP, fabric, more EP. SMOOTH out well. Notice the difference between the curb side rear rough patch and the skylights... I used EP only around plumbing and fridge vent so that I can remove and repair as needed without major risk to underlying fabric.
After proper cure of 48 hours on the EP, I applied the "primer" in the morning and afternoon. That evening (double the cure/recoat time), I applied first coat of Bus-Kote. Followed by an overnight cure then two more coats curing each overnight to next afternoon. We have had record high temps in Texas during this time.. Helped since I had no cover. I "cut-in" around all roof penetrations with brush then used 6" x3/8" nap roller on a long pole to apply the primer and Bus-Kote. Cleanup with water.... But once "cured".. You have to scrape it off.
Time from start cleaning, repair antenna, reseal, scrub roof with scotchbrite pad and rinse very well, on our 34' was about a step a day. Brushing final coats about 50 minutes each. Not including setup/cleanup.
Today it is already over 92 degrees and inside is a balmy 81.5.. Only the vents open... I am sure as the sun hits broadside temps will climb.
