Dick L, I do very little body work myself. A friend told me recently that body shops now will frequently glue a panel patch or hole cover instead of welding. I can see many advantages, provided you get all of the rust out first. With glue in there it would leave no place for moisture to get in between pieces and you don't get the expansion that you get from the heat of welding. Is glue in use for body work now?

Might have been a better example.

I like doing it this way to keep the back side as smooth as the front. Also once it is repaired it does not show where the repair was made. I stitch weld and don't get in a hurry. I make a few stitches and work on something else for a bit. When I flub up I cut it out and put in a bigger patch.

Yes...body shops use panel adhesive quite extensively now. Anywhere from patching panels to glueing complete bedsides in. Personally I do like it for the reason that you mentioned that it forms a complete seal against moisture. If you are worried about strength, I have seen it tested. They glued two pieces of metal together with it and then clamped it between to pulling towers on a frame machine and tried to pull it apart. The metal tore apart but the joint where it was glued didn"t. On a side note..if you get it on a pair of vise grips..the only way to get it to turn loose is with a torch. Don"t ask me how I
