nothin to lose

what's the biggest problem with tarp straps? they dry rot and break. what if there was something that would help prevent dry rot? hey got nothin to lose right?

bought some new straps on sunday, laid them out in the sun yesterday, sprayed them down and waited an hour. checked on them to find that the rubber aborbed just about all the ff i wiped off the very minimul excess then turned the straps over and sprayed the other side. after an hour i again wiped off the very minimal excess (as is seen by the practically still new rag i used) and was surprised by how well the rubber soaked up the ff now i have never done this before but i would like to believe the straps will repel water better than ever, be protected by the suns rays to a point and it will hopefully take a lot longer for them to dry rot time shall tell
