"Basics of Basics" Seam Sealers

I wrote another of my "Basics of Basics", this time on seam sealer. It is long with a lot of photos so instead of posting the whole thing here, I posted it on the Autobodystore forum and will provide this link. http://autobodystore.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7467

I had forgotten a very important issue that I planned on including. Here is what I added to the original "Basics".

Brian

"One very important point is to when you peel the tape up. It is a learning process and would be different with different brands of sealer. So some test runs would be HIGHLY advised. But basically, you remove it the second you get it dressed the way you want it. And for this reason, do small sections at a time if you have a big sealing project. On all three of the examples in the photos I pulled it immediately after spreading it out, IMMEDIATELY! On the door in photo "J" that area you see long the bottom was the first sealer applied and pulled off, in just the minutes I did this it started to kick. I got a small section that you can't see in the photos where the edge of the sealer got funky. Not too bad, but on the end where people would see it I would have had to spend some time fixing it. Under the bottom, no big deal. But different sealer is going to kick at different times. One you could wait twenty minutes, another you better be pulling that tape pretty fast. It all depends on the temp of the metal and shop as well. So, there is no replacement for running a little test and see before you do your project."
