All the best for your trip PJ!
What spray did you use, and did you get it done from one tin?
Looking at proofing the big Khyam.

Grangers Fabsil is about as good as you can get - the tins are better than the spray, its lasts for ages I have done two tents - one big family the other smaller three man - and an awning each year for the last three years and still have some left. Various size tins but worth it

http://www.grangers.co.uk/product.cfm?c ... oductid=22

Silicone-based proofer suitable for all fabric types
Paint on application
Available in Fabsil Gold high strength version
A highly effective silicone-based water repellent treatment for all kinds of tent, tarpaulin, canopies and awning fabrics. Dries to an odourless and colourless finish. UV treatment will extend the life and performance of tent fabrics. Iltr will cover upto 18 sq metres of nylon, 7.5 sq metres of light weight canvas and 5 sq metres of medium weight canvas. A light 2 person tent is approx 6 sq metres.

Well I'm in Brussels. Left yesterday, ferry to Dunkirk, scuba dived at Numa 33, the deepest pool in the world at 100' deep. Just at Waterloo now so going to the visitors centre tomorrow, then working out what to do next :) got some slight play in a front ball joint so might have to work out way slowly home rather than go any further

It's a shame you have to go home so soon, can't you get it fixed where you are?

Head to nurburgring, we'll worth a visit.
