Thanks chap. When I fix this in 2032 I'll make sure to update this thread with pics.
I'd gladly put that repair on my to-do list (and maybe one day get around to it) if it's going to get chucked away otherwise.
How's it broken? I could use it as a victim for my repair practice.
I've spent all day trying to seal leaks with no joy. Not looking good. Might have to start shopping around for a pre-made one.
The sealing isn’t too hard. If I made another one now I could do it much neater. I think the sharp corner at the back wasn’t done very well. I’m reinforcing that now with rubber cement and an inner tube patch. Hopefully it’ll hold air better after that.
It’s together. But it’s very leaky. After a minute or two it loses all firmness, but then stops leaking air once the pressure drops. So I’m chasing all the little pinholes now with sealant.
I'm back in the office in mid-August for a mandated three days a week. Not loving the idea. I've really enjoyed working from home. I find it more efficient, less stressful, cheaper, healthier...
Coming together now. I’m waiting on a couple of extra tubes of sealant as the kit was a bit optimistic about how neatly I could apply it and how much I’d use.
Sides are getting formed into tubes and sealed. Front and back still open for access. Quite a few smaller bodges have accrued now.
