Bob, these manufacturers are changing their recommendations so much. What exactly is the Chrysler recommendation? Last I heard it was to drill the spot weld, then spot grind that tiny spot and then weld right on that exact same spot to not "need" weld thru coating.

There is a lot of talk about the use of weld thru, I don't know, it seems like every manufacturer has something different. Chrysler wants you to use a butt weld with backing with no weld thru coating, then Toyota wants you to butt weld the seam with no backing and to use weld thru coating on pinch welds. Who the heck knows..

Not using weld through is a problem for me and probably for others who can only do this on weekends and in the driveway. From one Saturday to the next, if I don't have something to coat the work-in-progress, I can start getting surface rust even here in the Bay Area. I guess I'll just keep on doig it and hope for the best.

Keep right on using it, it is the best way to protect in short order, period. And if you don't apply it too thick or weld while it is still wet it really works pretty good and doesn't effect the weld much. And for goodness sakes, wear a welding resperator those are zinc fumes you are creating with you burn it.
