After a day of putting away the summer stuff and preparing for winter I took my flipup out to clean. Low a behold the freakin mice made some holes in it.
Any recommendations on repairing it ?

Little turds aren't they, so small yet can be so destructive. Not sure how well the iron on patches would work, might be difficult to lay it flat to run the iron. I'd suggest a patch and epoxy, or super glue and stitch it if you are handy with a needle. Good luck!

I bought the clam patches at Trombley's and then used the 3M super 77 spray glue and glued them on, works great and takes less than a minute to do the job.

Ha ha i dont even trust my cats!
My flipover and my popup are in the same shed as my laen mower.
Every weekend i am in there, i start my rider in there and give them both a good shake as well.
This has kept my tents and huts safe since the mouse incident with the family tent a few years back.
Never to return....knock on wood

Iíd just sew a patch on it man, itíll be good as new. Friggin mice! I just realized one got into a bag of birdseed in my shed and camped out under my chainsaw in a rag. Hopefully thatís all it did out there, Iíll have to inspect more when I get a chance.
