Re: Leaks

The wood near the wheel well is rotten because of water but the only other spot where there was standing water when i pulled back the rubber floor was in the middle portion where the floor meets the wall, in the front of the bus. And i cant find the leak in that spot.

Yes it does. It's more of a clear colour but NM has lots of dust storms. When it rains it's mud storms. This was applied between downpours one weekend. So it's more "dirty looking" than other places I have applied it. But this was the worst and I would rather show a worst example than a best example.

I have leaks around the edge of the floor also...

Can I just weld that whole seam or what? there seemed to be hex bolts that are holding it together and some are missing..? I have oxyacetylene but am going to borrow a MIG welder for the rest of the tiny nail holes... and I need to hire a professional metal fabricator to cut out and patch areas around the wheel wells. I am a little frustrated right now... any help would be so appreciated. I am in Madison, WI so if anyone is in the area and has done this stuff... help?
