Blind is only 2 years old but have a slow leak somewhere, and can't locate. After a heavy rain, I'll have standing water on the floor until it evaporates. No noticeable holes, and confirmed its not coming in from the windows, so looking to put a coat or 2 on it this weekend. What should I grab at lowes? Anything special for fiberglass?

Why don't you stand inside and have someone pour a few gallons of water over the blind? I would get a paint made for outdoor fiberglass and put as many coats as you can

Rustoleum makes a gallon can of truck bed liner. Worked great for mine.

I've already sat inside on a few rainy days. It's seeping in and running down the walls, but not real noticable until it reaches the floor.

You need some caulk or something. I'd be pissed if I spent the money on a fiberglass blind and it was leaking after two seasons

any other suggestions? Lowes told me anything they carry would peel after a year or two.

Talk to a body shop, they could give suggestions about paint and sealants.

I would have to imagine a good marine fiberglass paint for boats would be best

I have the same problem with a T-Box blind.. You can cut 2 R-panels about 34" & re roof your blind with an overhang for raindrip, then put a ridge cap down the middle. Put liquid nails on the bottom where you screw straight through the fiberglass & place 1x4's on the inside of ceiling for the screw support. This should take care of rain seeping through the roof & keep it off some of the side. Hopefully yours is not 20' in the air like mine is...

^ hoping I can find a paint to seal and not go through all of that.. Yikes.. And no, it's only on a 5' base. I spoke with tbox yesterday and they recommended going to ace and looking for a BCP Mobil paint, or Sherman Williams. I will add they were very concerned and asked where and how long ago I purchased and to keep them updated.
I'm not expecting them to do anything, but they did seem legitimately concerned. They probably don't hear much after selling to dealers..

Tractor Supply sells asphalt fence paint that is very durable. It's black and could be used to cover the roof of your blind.

Go to a pool supply house and buy gel coat. This is the stuff used to resurface in ground fiberglass pools. Obviously waterproof!
