Wonder if you could hot mop it like you would do a roof? I know you can get tar in buckets just need a way to heat them up. No local companies?

Most home improvement places have asphalt sealer in 5 gallon pails that you just broom on

that refinishes it, but its not much more than painting walls, I need to fill in cracks with hot tar so it sticks, then reseal with brooming it in.. The cheapest hot asphalt kettle I can find is like 750, doesnt seem to bad..

People don't normally reseal parking lot asphalt, they mill it out and put it back about 1-2" deep. After so long the fines are washed out of the mix and its pointless to seal it.

How big are the cracks? If they are minor alot of people heat them with a flamethrower type torch and roll them back together

a sealer is good for a couple years at best. A mill and fill is good for 20 years.
