Question on POR-15 and Welding

Ok, so after reading all the great reviews on POR-15 I decided to pick some up.

Truck is a 57 Chevy 3100. The doors have the tendancy to trap water and moisture and the bottoms rot out. I'm planning on cutting out all of the rusted out areas and replacing them.

Thing is, I was thinking it might be a good idea to slap some POR-15 on the inside of the panel where the water is trapped...that's where the whole welding and POR-15 question comes in.

Think I should just use weld through primer on the backs of the panels? maybe use por-15 on the inside far away enough from the seam so I don't burn the POR-15 off and suck fumes.

input.

thanks

Unstable, hi
prep the inside of your panel first, weld it in, por 15 inside with brush or spray whichever is easier, i like to put jb weld epoxy on all my weld seams, it stops all moisture leaking.
thanks, scot

Weep Holes

How about opening it up for repair. Clean it all out and then check the WEEP HOLES. Add them if necessary. Then use metal prep/etch. THEN use the Por-15 product. My 55 had problem until I cleaned it all out and opened larger Weep Holes for better drainage. 20 yrs ago.
