No, the only spot I had to do over was on that seam though.

I had two spots where I did not put enough primer down (trying to save the second can - why? I don't know) that failed to seal. I carefully cut away the bubble and resprayed and put a larger piece over it. I was just up on the roof and all seams are sealed solid now.

looks like the wind got that edge. I have one spot where the edge is exposed to the wind that I applied a tiny, I mean TINY, bead of roof caulk along the leading edge of the tape to protect against the edge curling up. No problems.

Do keep in mind that you do have to clean the back of the tape if you lap it, I think they put some type of non stick coating on it as they roll it up.

Will the acetone affect or remove any paint when you clean the surface?

Acetone will DISSOLVE paint; and plastic; and rubber; and fingers; and eyes; and is carcinogenic. All around nasty stuff.

Be careful.

Update:
Eternabond is replacing the tape and sending some caulking for the leading edges (as buzzards27 has mentioned)
They also suggest I use a roller this time.
Sooooo...round 2 coming up!

Eternabond is a great company to do business with! They stand behind their products and offered a solution. No questions asked. I highly recommend them.

Their web site was pretty specific about using a roller to provide pressure especially at the edges. I failed to mention I used a wall paper roller to roll out the air bubbles. Very happy to hear they are replacing the tape.

I had an end section of tape affixed to my front nose seam come up during my travel through very high New Mexico wind gusts. Even Eternabond can't survive those NM winds!

The NEW roof had been completely taped within 45 days of arrival from the factory and did not require priming, according to everything I read. However, I will use acetone for this repair and future repairs and, if I were to do it over, I would use primer.

Hey Lou,
They dealership I got mine from told me I could use Mineral Spirits to prep the surface with.

What do you think about that?
It seems to stick down ok so far.
I hope I'm not in for problems.
I cleaned it then rinsed it off with a hose, let it dry then applied the tape.

Bill
