Installing new hatch
« on: May 18, 2018, 02:45:03 PM »
I am installing a new hatch on my 2012 MK3 Murranji and I would like to know what good quality sealant I should use to seat the hatch in place.

I believe it’s recommended you use Mastic. It never really sets and is flexible enough to withstand the flex and vibration.
It’s available from Bunnings

Canning Mk 3
And a Mountian of stuff I don't think we need but apparently it's vital camp equipment.

If you buy from Track they supply the hatch with a roll of mastic. It is less gooey than the sort you buy in a tube & consequently much easier & less messy to use. Comes as a cylindrical strip lined with paper which you peel off the strip to use.
