I am looking at skinning my trailer with steel soon. I plan on spot welding the panels into place but I am curious as to what products to be looking at for sealing up all the edges? What are some comercial or industrial grade names of products? I am looking for the best stuff between price and function... ease of use won't hurt either.

Also, can anyone recommend a weld through primer for body panels? I understand you need to clean/regrind off the spot to be welded but I want to make sure I fight the Rust-beast as much as I can before I seal it up.

Thanks!:cheers:
