You probably know this by now, but from the website: "Seam sealer is included, and sealing is done by the customer in order to save costs and expedite your shelter. 1. Pitch your shelter tight to allow sealer to penetrate and waterproof the stretched seams, stitch holes and thread. 2. Fabric should be clean and dry (this sealer claims to cure in wet or damp conditions). Use a paper cup, mix sealant and mineral spirit (paint thinner) until you have a slurry about the thickness of molasses. Using a 1/2" inch paint brush, apply to all sewn areas, seams, bartacks and holes. 3. Curing: leave the tent pitched until the sealant is not tacky, the longer the better. Fully cures in 24 hours but dries tack free in about 30 minutes to 1 hour." I usually use a foam brush for this, but any brush will do. There's really nothing much to it. Pretty easy to pitch. There are several youtube vids From Kifaru: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZzwBXKABb0g others too... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9PzNXlcb90 Instructions are handily included printed in the stuff sack. Did you get the liner or netting or anything? I didn't. Sometimes I wish I had the liner but it's not usually an issue.
