I brought this up again because I am still seeking the best way of finishing my '48 Chevrolet Fleetline's body.

Just one question Mrwood, The welting was used to stop body squeaks and rattles so how do you prevent the squeaks and rattles without using welt, bonding or welding them. I would rather have them filled and smooth but I also like the idea of just wrenching them together to fit without a body seam and being able to remove them.
