Um duh! would be my first technical response. They would have been better off recoating with some alkyd paint, but at least some kind of bonder should have been obvious. Once again this article is astouding in it's diseminating of the nature of applying caoting and why the work or not, KTA-Tator should be required reading for anyone thinking of applying any kind of caoting, thanx guys. Now how do you apply acrylic primet to pvc rain-gutter in the hot California sun? very quickly... jas
