My Camaro is going on 5 or 6 years old and I'd worn a hole clear through the rubberized external coating in my right pit from rubbing on offside wake crossings (I'm LFF). I thought it was as good as dead since every time I'd jump in, water would come flooding through the intact inner lining and the worn area around the hole in the outer layer.
I read on here about someone using spray on flex seal to repair a dry suit so I thought I'd give it a shot.
The flex seal comes out thick and it's hard to apply nice even coats but you can smooth it out a bit with a finger in a nitrile glove.
I actually used flex seal to build up some thickness, then used plasti dip to do a top coat.
Stuff a towel inside the suit to stretch out the affected area well before spraying and let dry. Do multiple coats. The wrinkly appearance is from when you pull out the towel.
Only used once so far but it was definitely water tight.
