Inside the sills I used Eastwoods Corless paint, brushed on where ever
you can't get to once welded up. I will also Waxoyl all those areas once
The whole car is (or will be) given 2 heavy coats of epoxy primer over
the bare metal.
The underside was also finished in some left over VW white paint to seal
the epoxy and give it a finished look.
I do NOT use autobody seam sealer, but being a building contractor, I
found Solar Seal (brand) caulk to be about the best stuff out there to
seal anything. It goes on easy, can be smoothed with a wet finger,
cleans up with thinners and will fill 1/4" holes without sagging. It
comes in colors too. Works great around windows and roof leaks too ;)
Although not cheap, it's still 1/2 the price of seam sealer and easier
to work with.
