Pinch Seam - Bondo, JB Weld, Marine Tex or what?

I'm attacking the pinch seam, and wondering everyone's thoughts on what's best to fill it with? What are you guy's using?



Thanks!

There is actually a product made for this. My business is located next to a body shop so when I needed to trim the pinch seam, I borrowed the caulking gun loaded with it from them. I was careful and only got it on every other thing in my shop.

Whip into a body shop and offer them $10 to squirt some in there for you, I'll bet they will.

Left the foam in there and didn't disturb but what was cut off, layered it with RTV and it seems to be holding up fine.

The stuff the body shops probably use is 3M Ultrapro Autobody Sealant. Great stuff. Available at any auto body supply place.

Thanks for the input guys, I think I'm going to tackle it tonight, at least cut it off for our weekend trip, gettin kinda tired of hearing it hit, I'll probably swing by the local body shop to see what they have, or go the JB route as I'm familiar with it, but thanks for all the tips. While I'm at it, any tips on getting the flairs off? I hear people say just yank on them, but I want to get them off with out F'n them up.

Thanks for the compliment on the TJ and the wife TEXASKEV, She was in Jeep Chix section of Jeep magazine last year, it's our Avitar, I'll post the full size pic if anyone is interested, I also added the link to our Flickr site with the JK pics to my sig. Here are a couple of it, doesn't look too impressive now, but once we get the bumpers on it it'll look cool, not bad for the wife's DD?

Used a Sawzall, cut the corner off but left the spot weld. Running 37s, clear just fine . Hit it with some Rustoleum semi-flat black on the cut.

I took a lot off mine and used Bondo Glass, it's held up fine. I'll try and get a pic.

I cut it off, welded it back together, and then had it line-xed.
