    Well I am doing a little more resto. work than planned with my project :p. I finished making the rear quaters and started to tack some other parts in. I know I am going to be using POR15 followed by a good coat of Herculiner(interior). Would this enough to seal the seams on the panels or would it be a good idea to just to use seam sealer from CCOT ::)? Thinking I could also just take the TIG and "drip" seal.

    I use duraback as an undercoating under the tub. Works great and prevents rust. Hercuilner on the inside. Best stuff ever. I would buy 3M panel sealer from NAPA. Just get a caulk gun and go for it. Much cheaper then CCOT for better stuff.

    Does the NAPA/3M stuff get hard or does it stay pliable? Also does it take a coat of paint very well??

    Thanks

    POR15 also makes a seam sealer.Sealed all seams then painted POR15 on so far holding well.About $15 a tube though.

    Thanks for the tips guys. Getting some very mixed reviews about POR15. I've used it for other things and had no issues. Dont know if a bad batch has gone out or what. Herculiner is def. going on the inside, interested to know if the 3M stuff will take a paint and if its pliable or not.
