    Thanks Len. I've been looking for something to sand panels down to bare metal for epoxy and filler, so something like this may do the trick.

    Area between roof skin and bows: glue?

    Between the roof skin and roof bows on my 69 Charger, the factory applied some sort of goop/sealer/glue. Any idea what it was and what I should use in its place? Would panel bond adhesive be overkill?
