Seam sealing inside edges of exterior panels
After you clean-up inside exterior panel seams you should first use Captain Tolleys Creeping Crack Cure. It will wick into the smallest spaces in between the panels. Then you can add Trempro or Acryl-R to the seams and create a sealant dam to add to your leak proofing of the inside seams at the panel overlaps. In addition you should also use this same two layer application to the outside seam edges to really have the best protection against water intrusion! This process almost mimics the seal that was used at the factory between panels on overlapped seams and goes the extra step to add sealant at both inside and exterior seam locations. The more sealing you can get the better lasting leak prevention you will achieve. Don't forget to check and seal all rivets using the same technique. Then seal all rails, lights, id plates, etc. to help keep moisture from getting inside! Hope you have a real good experience doing this as the benefit will last much longer than the time it takes to do the work. Ed
