[Vwdiesel] Body "filler"

I'll tell you what boys, that foam stuff is great for many applications
in life! I used it to fill the void under the back window of a pickup
that had gotten water in it. No more air and water- no more rust. I also
used it to fill the void over a front fender after the PO had drilled a
hole to mount something stupid- a horn or something. Rain water had
found its way in for future problems. A can of high-swell foam and no
more water or air in that fender void. Good stuff around the house and
farm too! I don't know about using it as a finish material for autobody
work but it is a great insulator, sound-deadener, vapor barrier,
moisture guard. Just be sure you have a place for the excess to escape
of it might pop something as it expands!

After all the steel rusts away, I'll have a plastic art form in the
shape of an A2!
