Hi to all,just about to start fitting new floor pans,all cleaned and going to spot weld.I noticed a product used on youtube where a seam sealer is applied to both surfaces and then spot welded whilst still wet.Has anyone used this application? or any other recommendations? Neil
Are you thinking of "weld through primer"? Zinc-rich so it persists in the seam after welding. Then, brush seam sealer well into the seam when cool.
But I am surprised to find that 3M have a "weld through seam sealer". See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKu32jqP1fc Never heard of it before, let alone used it! And I can't find anywhere in the UK that sells it. Good luck!

Hi Bill,many thanks for reply,do you know of a make you would recommend?Im currently fitting new floorpans can it be used between floorpan/scuttle and then plug welded or do i have to spotweld??? many thanks Neil
I've only used it with a spotwelder, and that was some time ago. I was given some in an unmarked plastic tub, decanted from a larger container by a firend in the trade. While I never handled the original packaging, I think it was a 3M product,
With a spot welder, it made a very sattisfying 'fizz' as it flowed around the heated metal.
