Emergency Seam Sealer
In my other thread, http://autobodystore.com/forum/showt...ender-lip-rust, I decided to do use some picklex and zero rust on rust that was on the lip of my rear fender.
It looks like this will have to be a temporary fix, and I will have to have a body shop work on it to do it right (of course I'm out of work which complicates the money picture). When I was sanding off the rust I found that some portions of the weld seam had started to seperate, so there were small gaps between the inner fender well metal and the outside fender metal. So I wire brushed them, sprayed and dried with picklex and painted with ZR.
But of course there are therefore open gap still there. I have the car on the driveway, letting the ZR to dry. It is going to rain tomorrow morning and there are no auto body supply stores open at night, and even if they were, I couldn't drive to them because I would get dirt in the seam while driving.
I guess I could put some electrical tape over the seam or duct tape and wait till Saturday when it is dry and buy some seam sealer tomorrow. Or, I do have some liquid nails in a tube sitting around. Googling basically says this is not the best thing to use, but I don't have a lot of options.
At the shop when we have to leave a repair zone to the element, we tape some plastic wrap to protect, you can use a garbage bag with tape...
Used some tap
Yeah, I thought the paint was dry and I put some electrical tape over the gap and went to the autobody store and got some 3m sealer.

So now I have to wait for the ZeroRust to dry, sand it off and do it all over again. That is going to be hard. Maybe I will schedule with the autobody shop to do it sooner.
