    Hey All.
    Was getting ready to seam seal the floor pans etc.
    The brand FUSOR was mentioned.
    Anyone tried it?
    Any feedback or suggestions are appreciated !

    I used 3M urethane sealer on my firewall before we painted it. No issues to report.

    It was mentioned to me that some seam sealers cant be put on bare metal and DTM primer is the way to go.
    Can anyone confirm???

    I used SEM 1K. Primed, painted or bare metal is Ok according to the directions.

    3M here. from ebay cheapest.
    I primed the bare metal with epoxy primer, then put the sealer on and primer over that.
    or prime then seam seal, then lizard skin ;)

    Just an update on the SEM sealer.
    Tools nice and sticks like you know what to a blanket!
    Not a lot of smell and does not seem to sink to much. I will see how it takes paint next.

    wet your gloved finger with asatone and use your wet finger to smooth out the seam sealer.
    Another tip......lay down some tape on both sides of seam to be sealed, add sealer, then smooth and then remove the tape. pro results!;)
