    Default Using Panel Adhesive ?s.

    I've seen alot of guys use screws to hold the panel on, to let the adhesive dry. My question is, how to seal up the holes from the screws, and if you can not get to the back side of the panel? I'm assuming that most use seam sealer, then fill with filler.

    Thanks.

    If you're talking about metal panels you can either weld the holes or use fiberglass filler. If the holes and seams are under a molding I would use fiberglass filler then prime and paint normally before installing the molding.

    But, wont the weld heat up the adhesive to much, and separate?

    Thanks.

    If you only have screw holes to weld then you'll only cook the bonding material close to the holes and it shouldln't make any difference in the structure of the repair. Just don't get carried away by putting too many screws in the metal.
