Rear Pinch Weld trim

I looked all over last night and could not find a really good thread that showed pics of this.

I have a 6" long arm Teraflex lift with 37" tires. I have swapped out the stock dana 44's for Dana 60's and thought I would tackle this today.

Check out my build thread for more info on my jeep! https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=62575

I have the Poison Spyder rear fenders and wanted to continue the line they cary for a nice finish.

Marking the cutting area

I marked the cutting area with a marker and then cut it with a sawzall. Took a grinder to it and evened everything out and rounded the edges.

Sanded everything down with 100 grit to knock the burrs off and then wiped the area with a cleaning solevent.

Masked the area off for painting and applied Quick Steel to fill the hole.

Yes, I know the grinder got away from me a little. By the time I am done sanding and painting it will all be good again!

Final pics

Sanded everything down with 100 grit and got the Quick Steel shaped. Went up to 400 grit all over and applied 3 coats of paint. Let me know what you think!

Great job on the pinch weld trim!

Is there any other good way to seal a cut pinch seam/ pinch weld? Or is the Quick Steel the best way to go? Just asking, as I have never worked with it. Is it just apply, mold, set, grind, sand? And then prep/paint as any other bare metal?
