Reimo pop top roof crack

Post by BigScottyUK »

I have a crack on the outside of my pop top roof. The inside has been patched in the past and is solid. The paint on the outside however...

Any ideas on how to tidy this up easily? Thanks in advance.

Easily? No. I would sand it back, fill it and gel coat. Not much else you can do in my opinion. It's more of a crevasse than a crack! I was going to suggest 'Capt Tolley's creeping crack cure' until I saw the picture.

You"ll be grinding that out and layering up from the i side if you want to do it right. Roof off job.

Aw man sounds like I’ll have to live with it then. Maybe a nice big sticker on the outside?
Thanks for the info guys.
