I used a two part product called Epo Strong for filler on my frame and transmission housing before powder coating. Regular filler isn't conductive so it can't be used. I have thought about using it for filler in places like the firewall.
Thats a good point that its not conductive for a powdercote procedure.

Good point well made sir! I agree too, JB Weld is a strong bonding and sealing product. I have used it for pin holes and small pitted ares that after properly cleaning the spots lasted forever.
