MG MGB Technical - Which body sealant/adhesive in UK
|Hi, which brand of body sealant or body adhesive product available in the Uk would you recommend. I need it for sealing the wing to boot corner gap; similar to the original rubberised type of sealant aor other minor gaps.|
|Not sure which corner gap you're referring to Iwan. I've used Upol Grey Stripe seam sealer which stays flexible (rubbery) and can be overpainted when fully cured.|
|I believe he means the gap between the boot floor and the rear wing.|
My car has a strip of foam rubber filling the gap.

|As far as seams go I used 3M 25 years ago, still sound.|
|Depends how big the gap is. CBS do a roll of Butyl sealer. It's about 8mm Dia, but can be stretched smaller. It's incredibly sticky, non hardening but not sure about it's paintability.|
Other joints (wings etc., have been sealed with PU sealer. This is a great "glue", can be "tooled" smooth, is very flexible and IS over-paintable.
|3 m is certainly a good sealer but try one of the Wurth ones which is probably even better|
|Hi I find the upol brush on stuff very messy. 3m is ok; will try wurth. |
Anyone have information regarding panel glues, i.e. the ones that are supposed to stick panels together without welding.
