Step 1: You Will Need:
Gorilla tape ( tough&wide if available)
scuff scotch-brite pad
Heat gun or hair dryer
"Genuine idea! " please rate
A well ventilated or open area
Only recommend to use heat on Gorilla Tape! Other will be damage!
Before doing anything, try some acetone on a non visible area for testing...
Nothing wierd happen? OK!
Next the thinking part! Think you will have to overlap the tape at least 3" all around the damaged area.
NOW! Clean the surface and brush off hard with acetone all the area where the tape would be. Wipe and make sure it well clean before applying Gorilla Tape.
Now install the tape PERFECTLY flat.
Repeated these step on the other side of the tarp.
You can also add strength on friction area.
Heat the installed tape the hottest your skin can handle. About 50°C\120°F
DO NOT OVERHEAT OR MELT THE TARP (you can wear glove)
Now strongly rub the tape into the surface and leave no air bubble between. This will help achieve a better bond.
Now it will be good for another winter!
