3M makes excellent body panel adhesives, as does Norton and a host of other companies. There is nothing wrong with welding in a repair panel as "swvalcon" has done, in fact it's an excellent way to repair a rotted out trunk but, I wouldn't be afraid to use adhesive in these types of situations, both methods work very well.

Yes it looks great, those buggers must rust out like no other car as it's a big "bowl".

|swvalcon||Thought about going the glue route but decided to weld instead.Seamed to work ok just not as fast as glue although I know it's not going anywhere.|

trunk pan replacement
I replaced the trunk pan today in a 62 chev. Frist cut out the old pan then ground lip and primed. Set in the new pan after drilling holes for plug welds. Welded and ground plug welds and reprimed new lip on new pan. Seam sealed around the new pan now all thats left is to prime sealer when dry and either bed liner trunk or splater finish. Need to check with owner to see which way to go. 6 hrs start to finish. Not as fast as I was when younger could of had this done in about 4 a few years ago.
