I bought the Brushable Seam Sealer, Seam Sealer Caulk, and Chassis Black from Eastwood Tools. This weekend I had a chance to use all three.

The Brushable Seam Sealer goes on really nice and stays where you put it. It has a great factory look when you're done. I used a 99 cent 1" cheapo disposable brush so I didn't have to worry about clean up.

The Seam Sealer Caulk comes out of the tube easliy, fills in nicely, and when you smooth it, it stick to the car not your finger. I used it in the gaps that the brushable sealer wouldn't do well in.

I bought the sprayable Chassis Black and used an HVLP spray gun. It's already thinned to spraying consistancy so you don't have to mess with thinning. It goes on nice and black and gives great coverage in a single coat. I'll probably wind up using 2 to 3 quarts by the time I'm done. Use laquer thinner for easy clean-up.

I also bought the spray gun from Eastwood a few weeks ago. It was the kit that comes with two guns - big and small. This was the first time I used it as well. It works great to, and it comes apart and cleans up easily.

All of these products perform as advertised and I recommend them.

I had them send me a catalog, and Man, I am impressed. The price's are great, and they have a selection from Hell on things you will actually use. Sounds like you are sealing this badboy for life.

Eastwood has always been great. They really tailor their product line to the restoration/hot rod customers as opposed to the automotive repair industry in general.

One of the nice things is that they are located an hour from me. When I order I usually have it the next day.

I sand blasted this car to bare, so I'm really just trying to make all the seams look factory again. Oh, and I had to do a lot of welding to repalce all the rusted panels. Caulk and paint hides a multitude of sins. (Equally true working around your house too.)
