How about some seam sealer on both sides of the weld?

This is the type of product I'm referencing: http://3mcollision.com/products/seal...ige-08310.html
That fills any gaps or pinholes in the welds, prevents any rust, corrosion, or cracking... Then spray with a primer or your Monstaliner. Some people use purely this product to install new floor pans, and some use it along with spot or fully welding.

Here is just a few more pictures from Monday night.... The floor is incredibly solid, and looks great... Can't wait to get driving....








Today a few key parts arrived.... Magnaflow exhaust... The setup will be 2" from exhaust manifold back which opens up to 2.5" right after the Magnaflow exhaust.... This will be a cat less setup... Also the muffler will be plumbed in 34" down stream from the manifold.









People of the forum don't be afraid to comment.. Good, bad, but or other... I like on discussion and to bounce ideas or issues amongst others in the forum.... It's simply no fun when it's just a journal.

Says the guy with arms smaller than a school boy.

Although I see the application of the 3M product mentioned, it won't be needed in the center section. Maybe we can use it along the back section of tub we cut out to fit the last panel in?

Exhaust looks great and I can't wait to get it on and hear it run. Should really make her sound as intended and not kill us when driving. Start soaking all the bolts boss. It might just be easier to cut everything off and start fresh

If the welds were perfect I'd agree that the product wouldn't be necessary. But with all the pinholes and imperfections that are caused by the Flux-core wire that you guys are using (and lack of experience), this product definitely will help with longevity.
