A friend just gave me an old Campways 14' hypalon raft. It needs a variety of minor repairs, and then I'll start modifying/customizing the frame for my uses. Right now, though I need to apply a few patches over spots where the frame meets the tubes and has caused serious wear, and I want to glue down a few loose edges on a variety of spots. The boat holds air, though there might be some minor leaks, I'll search for those later.
I've got Clifton Hypalon adhesive and appropriate patch material. Some instructions I've read call for cleaning the surface with toluene, another I ran across said cleaning with alcohol was sufficient. What's the real story here? I'd rather not work with toluene if I don't have to, but I'll strap on an organics mask and do it if it really makes a difference.[/quote]
