    Eternaclean is a product made to prep surfaces for Eternabond tape. Has anyone ever used it on ABS? Will it melt it?

    If I didn't know better I would say it looks like brake cleaner....

    What we need to know is what solvents are in it. Personally I would just use acetone, that should get off anything that will prevent the eternabond from sticking.

    Never heard of it. I know for sure you can safely use acetone, as we had to use it all over the roof prior to our Grizzly Grip. For the Eternabond tape, I just cleaned with soap and water. It's stuck for life.

    Thanks! I'll clean the abs with acetone then. I'm doing repairs to my front box lid....

    Any pictures of the front box lid repairs? Mines leaking a bit too but the dang thing looks fine, cant find any cracks, maybe the seal?

    The seal on the water heater door killed my storage box.

    I had problems with the seal. I think my problems now are around the cargo hatch on the side...

    Often behind and/or under the lid hinge.
