    Hi Byron,

    I used a good part of a can on two of my garage gutters back when it first came out. On large cracks, I bent sheet metal flashing to help seal them up along with the Flex Seal. I sprayed them on a...

    I would just pluck them too. At least 7 or 8 years ago, I bought a drake woodie skin from a well known flyshop up in Maine. It still has so much oil that it's leached into several changes of paper...
