Several years ago I restored my 72 Ford pickup. I replace all the floors, fenders, core support ect. None of it was even bad but after I started into it to replace the cab mounts it snowballed. I sandblasted the side seams on the bed, used acid etch and urethane primer. Then used the factory type caulking down the seam. Within 3 years I had holes I could poke my finger through along that seam. Of course the truck lived outside so it got salt air even when it wasn't driven on the salty roads.
But, but, but !!! If you used all the "RIGHT" products, wasn't it supposed to last just forever and forever?
