What to do about Silicone sealant?

Hello all,


First post here. Had to make it because I maaaaay have just screwed myself over. I did not know there were two kinds of silicone sealant. And so, two days ago, I applied two and a half tubes of Geocel's Acetoxy Cure to some rather hard to reach places by the new wheel wells that I had constructed. They are made out of sturdy steel, no copper or other metal disastrously prone to its corrosive effects, but I want to know exactly how badly I am screwed right now. I was planning to cover everything that would be outside over again with a layer of Flex-Seal and then undercoating on top of that.


Do I need to dig it all out again or is the damage done at this point?

After the permabond is dry brush on a layer of CA glue, then your other coatings should stick. I'm not positive this will work, but removing every trace of silicone caulk can be impossible.



This is the only solution I know of after a lot searching on the internet. Silicone caulk is great for fish tanks, not much else.
