Most of us have done this before.  I had the time this morning and wanted a change of pace so I shot some photos as I did the repair.  One can't always find a shed that has the right shaped
point to be used to replace the one broken off but if you do it can save time and looks great.  This is probably a repeat but there will be some that will benefit from it!  Gotta love Epo Grip!









P.S. It took me longer to do all of this on my pc then the actual repair....

Very nice Boxie! I started using the seam and repair putty a few years back when I spoke with you. That stuff is amazing, thanks for sharing the pics and the info again!

I just finished on just like that, but had a hell of a time
matching up the color.
I will try your technique next time.
thanks for sharing

Looks great. Did you run any wires for reinforcement or is the epogrip strong enough by itself?
