I'll be doing some welding soon, and I want to use the 3M Weld-Thru primer, but I was wondering if it will interfere with the grounding of the panels I weld.

Do anyone know if it's formulated to conduct electricity, or should I make sure I ground the top panel?

Hmmm, I think I just answered my own question.

I tried using a weld thru primer and did not have good results. It seemed hard to strike a good arc and weld when it was on the metal.

Considering the alternative, bare metal in unreachable places, what choice do you have?

That's what I suspected. Guess I'll have to practice.

I've been practicing welding on tin cans. When I master that, then I'll be comfortable enough to start on the car.

I used the 3m weldthru on just about
everything on the 66, no problems,
but it does seem to start an arc better
after it's dried for about an hour.

I plan to let it dry well before I go to it.

Welcome to M&M, by the way!
