Re: best filler to use over lap welded seams
I either dreamt it or read it someplace about allmetal and epoxy as a combination wasn't the best thing to put on, I have searched four forums on two different occasions and can't find it. I might be wrong on this.
I just did some more searching, on the hotrodder forum, and they mentioned panel flex and vibration, and extreem hot and cold temperatures, somebody said that the epoxy would help out any flexing in that area.
I also read some articles about allmetal or lead, and on occasion moisture would get under it, not always, but has happened. Specifically around the roof quarter panel joint.
There has been a lot of discussions on this, and I'm not saying allmetal is not a good way to go, but pretty much everybody is leaning towards epoxy in most cases.
I guess a guy could go with about anything, but it still boils down to the right prep on any of it, and stick to what the manufacturer says.
If anybody can find a detailed product sheet on all metal and put it on here I would like to read it.
This whole subject needs a good discussion, but keep in mind we have professional bodymen on here, and time is money to them, where a hobbist can try and reinvent the wheel, its all a matter of sorting it out.
