So.. After watching a u-tube video, which made it look super easy.. I tried my hand at re sealing today. Omg.
It took a few days prep cleaning off the old silicone and using acetate and razors and stripping knives.. Then to put the tape on.. Took forever, only to find areas I had missed removing the old silicone..
All good right? Well.. I applied the silicone today. Gee it's hard to get the thickness right!! Then to smooth it before it starts curing! But I did it.
Yay, now for a week to cut then a super clean.. Then I'll have my biggest tank yet, which I know is small to most of you, but 58 liters is big to me
The unattractive detail.. Not so smooth as when I pulled up the tape it left some ridges due to heavy thick layer of silicone, so attempts to smooth weren't great as it starts curing with an outside skin..
But... So glad to have done this. The old silicone was definitely shrunken, mouldy and hardened
