Take a look at your new car. You'll find the doors are glued on as are many other stressed and structural pieces.
Burt Rutans around the world unrefueled flight was done in a glued composite aircraft.
Go ahead an glue that sucker on there. Be a pioneer and keep us posted on the results.

I was just wondering what you guys would think of using JB weld to fill in the drip rail of a 56 F-100 as compared to led filling it.
Thanks, devin

What's wrong with a good metal content body filler like "Aerolite"? Clean and roughen the metal and it should be as good and cheaper than epoxy or lead.

I think it's always good to "be a pioneer" in certain areas to better a trade practice......but.

You don't do it with JB Weld, that is not the appropriate adhesive to use. JB Weld IS NOT A THIN FILM ADHESIVE, as are the adhesives made by Fusor, 3M and others for this SPECIFIC PURPOSE.

In the body shop world, or even on the slight edge of it, using JB Weld to mend body panels is a HACK JOB that will soon fail.

Don't do it.

As for lead versus JB, no contest, LEAD. If this is an area that has flex, then you can't use filler.
