    Yours turned out great, makes me wish I would have completely stripped mine also. But I didn't, filled in all the cracks and am now ready to apply GG. I've already purchased the product and some extra rollers. My question is, what are people doing on the edges, the channel along the top, the two raised pieces on top and near the awning? Are they cutting in with a brush at all? Seems like it would be hard to do it all with rollers and still have adecent finish

    Thanks for responding fless, I really don't know what I was worried about... for future coaters that GG was SO sticky I think it would stick to anything. Anyway, got 2 coats on it last night and still have enough for one more coat. How long should I wait between this 3rd coat from the 2nd one? This is what it looked like last night and there's no way I was taking that seal off. I tried, but its really tight and its like new so I figured why bother.

    To help out the other questions here, I used a brush and just dabbed it in at the awning rail, you can hardly tell the difference.

    I filled the cracks with dust from the 220 grit sanding, then the acetone wipe. Let it dry for 2 days then put the 2 coats on. That's it. Looks like I got lucky. I'm gonna do one more coat probably on Sat night just to make sure the abs is completely protected from the sun.

    Hello, can you tell me how you did this? This is the way we are going to go because we have alot of cracks and the roof is peeling. Also how long did this take you?

    My roof was pretty delaminated so it peeled off almost as one whole piece. I got a putty knife into one of the cracks on the side, pulled up and kept pulling until the roof was seperated.

    Removing the roof took maybe 15 minute and the paint application took about 30 minutes each time. The longest part was the drying time between coats. I don't remember off the top of my head but I think it was atleast a few hours.

    Sorry for the late response

    I didn't do anything to it other then a quick dry rag wipe down.

    The following is from the grizzly grip website (bold text added by me):

    https://www.grizzlygrip.com/camper-top-repair

    "Camper tops are actually the second biggest industry that we sell grizzly grip to behind the Marine industry. We get 90% of our camper top customers from camper top forums. Grizzly grip will protect and rejuvenate your existing fiberglass top to protect it for years from the sun damaging the surface. You can even apply grizzly grip directly over the foam under the fiberglass shell if your fiberglass surface is damaged beyond repair.

    1. Lightly scuff up the fiberglass shell with a scotch pad or 220 grit sandpaper.

    2. Wipe down fiberglass with MEK or Acetone.

    3. Apply two good coats of grizzly grip directly over the fiberglass, if you are going directly over the foam, just apply two coats of grizzly grip directly over it, no need to scuff it or wipe it down with a solvent."
