    So I finished riveting in some new floor pans.Basically around the rear footwell and floor areas and know I have some areas I need to fill. I know I am going to need some very flexible stuff so fiberglass is out of the question. Any ideas guys? Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    go to the local body supply house and buy some tubes of Body Caulk, and then cover it with seam tape. makes the patch totally waterproof.

    bondo is used to fill a small depression, not on a floor board, besides bondo isnt waterproof, if you want waterproof Duraglass (or whatever the fiberglass reinforced filler is called near your) should be used.
