Default Howdy & what is

Dunno.. I think I would use something else.. That roof tar can
really get to be a mess if you have to work on anything.
And it possibly could effect the fiberglass being an oil type
product. Don't know how it's built, but maybe heat shrink tubing,
or some coating that wouldn't be so messy. IE: I'd much rather use
black color weatherstrip adhesive to cover it, than roof tar.
It will dry to be like rubber, and could be peeled off if needed.
