    Sorry I don't know who answered my question on rust repair (bad rust on corner)but thanks! I replaced the corner, and I wonder is their a way to close in the seem between the corner and the cab other than a welder? What I want to do is prolong the inevitable I,m not expecting a body shop finish, and was going to put rhino liner over the work when corner is finished. Was wondering if fiberglass or something then a little filer.

    How did you attach the cab corner pieces to the body? I take it you didnt weld them on

    If you used rivets or even panel bond, you could seal the seams with a short strand fiberglass....It works like bondo, but is much stronger.

    with rust repairs the use of the fiberglass bondo is a solid repair. will not crack. then smooth over the top and cover with a very thin regular bondo. I also like to use countersink type rivets as they do not stick up.
