Painting Eternabond

I am sealing the roof to front cap seam with Eternabond and I would like to come over the rounded corners down to the vertical seam. Has anyone ever painted Eternabond?

TJ,

I just put EternaBond on last weekend, right over the existing stuff. I used 2 pieces, a piece from the back of the coach/seam to the middle then a piece from the front to just over the top so any water that blew in would naturally shed. It seemed to work fine, that stuff is REAL sticky, but that is what we want, right? Be careful once you put it down it is going to stick, you can work it a bit, but not much, particularly if it sticks to itself.

I went just past the down turn on the sides expecting that water will flow with gravity (I did not go all the way to the horizontal seam, I thought that would be too visible.

I have attached a before and after photo so you can see what it looks like. Obviously this is the rear cap, but did the same with the front.

Thanks for the info.
Your coach looks the same color as mine.
Do have the paint codes?

We have the Platinum exterior. I don't have the paint codes, however I think they are on the ACA site, if not drop a PM to Engineer Mike, he may have them.

From a top-view, he has the same color as all of us! Looks like mine, too (from the top)...

TP,

Your coach looks great and I see yours does NOT have the cracked AC shroud mine does. I mounted the Cell repeater antenna on the rear shroud and I must have hit a tree limb . I am going to reinforce the replacement cover when I get it, I also will go to white so all the roof looks equally "dorky" .

Used Eternabond around the chimney on the house. After 4 years it is still stuck tight to the brick and the shingles. Painted it black with Rustoleum and that is also still sound.
