Finishing the roof

The roof of the teardrop is covered in aluminum, but because of the flatness of the roof it tends to leak at the overlaps. I have cured this by coating the entire roof in silver seal. This product resists cracking by integrating fiber into the product, also it expands 200 times to keep its seal. Silver seal is specifically made for aluminum roofs, so I do not believe I will have further problems with it. It rolls on, but is hard to clean up. So take your time and just throw the roller away, as it is not salvageable.

I used a brush to go over the joints first, and then used a roller to coat the rest of the roof. The rest of the trailer has not leaked thus far.
