Too Many Projects I've never seen filler in a factory drip rail, just paint it over.

I figured that. I got that done and got the sealer down this morning. I've got to wait for it to dry now. Do you put filler over it in the drip rails or let it ride?

I wish hahaha! I need a second pair of hands to get the doors adjusted so I can adjust the fenders and locate my quicklatch pins for the hood.

I wasn't aware that they had that. I looked it up and it's a galvanized primer, which is a complete contradiction in purposes. Any metal with galvanized surfaces is meant to protect from the elements, but not to be welded on. It spatters VERY badly when welded and emits toxic fumes !!! I was talked into a can of galvanized weld thru by my local welding supply store, of all places, and cleaned it off after only 3 plug welds.
I thought I had a pic of the copper weld thru primer I use but I can't find it. If you want, I'll get one. It does not spatter but stills emits fumes. I really prefer to weld on bare metal, but supposedly, the primer helps protect the metal even after welding.

I always remove that "primer", to me it looks like it's the same old EDP that they have been using for years. I use copper weld thru primer on all welds.

I think I found my old license plate today for my old chevelle that I wanted to track down. I'm going to call the DMV and see if they can give me any info on the plates. I would have not had these issues had I got my old car back.

I'm glad that I've had yalls help either way!
