    there are a lot of stuff out there, are you rivets solid? if so a thin coating of RTV sealent will do a lot, not gobs an it will wear so you do it once a year or week, a thin coating in side an out, an yes it will come off in time so replace it as needed a thin coat will go just as far as a heave coat there is very little presser there.

    Reset your rivets that are leaking. The stress that is making them leak is now on the next rivets and soon they will leak. Putting a bandage on the leak does not solve the problem.

    I can teach you how to set and buck rivets PM me.
