Like the link above Gotchya !

But do you sand it back for painting ? How hard is it almost looks like jbweld in the final part of video. Sand it back, fill over and around it, sand and then paint etc

Re: Dug's 1959 Fleetside

it isn't meant to sand over top. look at any newer vehicle and you will see the seam sealer. in some spots it is best to use a caulking tube and lay down a nice bead, like the silicone around a sink or a tub. you will see it but it will be painted over and will hold the paint unless it is in an area that flexes a lot.

STILL HERE and all is well!!! Rather than move to Colorado, my wife decided we need to move to Orange Beach, AL. I'll build a fresh house with a 1,430 sf garage (heated and cooled) on our lot and move the entire operation down there. About an hour away. In addition to waiting for the bids on the house components to come in, I sold all the Schwinns, Honda Minibikes, my last rental house (yesterday) and actually moved the cab to the center of the garage to begin the paint work. We've had an especially rainy winter so every time I picked up the paint gun it was just too wet. Stay tuned!!

Bigger parts - electrolysis

When you say seam sealer - explain it to me - never done any paint really .....

In my case, If I thought the seam sealer may be seen, I masked it off to give it a crisp look. Took some time but it did look a litter better than the stuff I put on freestyle. The freestyle stuff I did I used the caulk tube and simply smeared it into the panel joints with a rubber gloved finger. I let it cure then painted. No sanding this stuff. Once it all got covered with the Raptor coating, it looked like I knew what I was doing.

Ok. I havent done mach cab/sheetmetal work apart from some rust patches welded in. On the the seam of thefoor pan to the firewall I just used a good quality roof/flashing sealer - figured it was sheet metal exposed to outdoor - seemed like a good candiate.

Good tips. It looks like a good product - I had heard it used a number of times but just nether bothered to ask. Thanks.

Re: Dug's 1959 Fleetside

wow dugg, you have been busy. if you are anything like me it will be an ordeal to move your existing garage over to a new one. hopefully you will have some overlap time so the new shop can be set up and ready to accept your "inventory" (lol) of things you have collected over the years. when I moved last time I had to chuck out a whack of stuff. not a hoarder (lol again) because it was all good stuff, right?
how big will the garage at the new place be, dimensionally, and will it be a tall one or a regular height one maybe? single door or double door? I have a 26x30 with 9'10" ceilings (bylaws suck) and 2 doors, that way when it is -30 outside I don't freeze the whole garage by opening a huge door. it is a bit fun to get into at times due to the alley width and no wiggle room there with the skinny doors. if doing it again I would put the shop into the yard another 4 ft so that would make the turn radius easier and no backing up most of the time, plus easier to negotiate a trailer into if need be. something to think about anyway. if you ever plan on having a hoist a single door works best so the hoist can be moved away from the outside walls. scissor trusses work well for that as well so the ceiling is taller in the middle of the room. I am sure you have that all thought out already though.
does it feel like a millenium has gone by since you had time to work on your old truck? gonna need it pretty soon by the sounds of it. post up a few pics when you get the paint applied, should look awesome.

Re: Dug's 1959 Fleetside

haha, it does seem like a big garage but I am sure it could still be filled up with stuff in relatively short order. for me anyway.
good on ya Doug.
