Metal 2 Metal on Zero Rusted Floor Pan Bottoms?

So I have my floors welded in, and I have a seam on the bottom side.. My thought was this
Piclex 20 entire bottom side (stripped clean to bare metal)
tack weld every few inches along the way
grind those welds flat
Zero Rust the entire bottom side in and out of the seams
fill the seam I have (tight seam) with metal 2 metal on the bottom side over the ZR to get smooth
Zero Rust again

Will Zero Rust take the metal 2 metal, and is this just a bad idea alltogether? should I just use seam sealer over the floor bottoms?

I guess you could say I'm doing a "frame off driver".

I was going to give you some advice with your floors, then I saw you were in MA. I just have a feeling its probably not as big of deal here in So. CAL. so good luck. I never salt proofed a car. LOL
Maybe Rhino line it?

Are the seams overlapped so water can get in them? If you can tilt your body this might work. When I lived in Ma. (26 years ago) my boss showed me how to take the welding torch and use the O-2 knob as a mini cutting torch to cut off the over lapped sheet metal back to the weld. Depending how much the customer could afford they woud stay unfinished, bondoed or leaded. We always used the sandblaster, metal prep, and Dupont Variprime. What is Zerorust, is Metal to Metal a dtm paint or bondo? Wurth USA sells the European undercoat that is industrial wax based. It is soft and reflows when it gets warm out. It is a yellowish clear color. I saw a Jetta that spent 8 years in Boston not a nut or bolt on the engine or suspension was useable due to corrosion but the body was perfect. Wurth also sells the european style seam sealer.

Zero Rust is similar to POR15.. search here on it..

Same with Metal to Metal.. it's basically a waterproof metal-laden body filler.
