hi greendog

i did mine with a 4" paint brush and did it inside and out, looked alot better - sort of refreshed the canvas. i used 6 litres- easy with a brush as you can easily see that youve got good coverage as it soaks in and the canvas goes darker

i dont know how well it worked as the 4 week trip from adelaide to brissie to birdsville and back down to adelaide was dry ( october last year )

pick a shadey spot and let it dry for a day or two depending on the weather

cheers

mike

Ok thanks for that,we have weather here for the next week into the mid 28-30's and no shade in the back yard would it be ok to do it in full sun light.cheers GD

Hi Mike,
May I ask what product you used, reason being our canvas (grey in colour) has faded & looks a little washed out with all the use so it would be good to give it a refresh as it is in good condition otherwise.

regards Simon.

I have always subscribed to the theory that any tent needs a fly cover to carry the bulk of the water off. A fly will keep the sun off too which is a real bonus. We use a tarp that is easy to adjust for the time of day or with available shade and it saves putting up the annex. Makes a great verandah when we pull it out over the entrance side.

Yeah I know. I am not addressing the question directly but I offer the suggestion anyway,

Owen

When I did mine I used a brush for the seams then a roller off a step ladder to do the roof. Got coverage all over but haven't tried it out yet.
Pretty new to this lifestyle.
