Removed Carborundum EZ Repair because of availability issues. Added the Eastwood 51655, the Permatex 81173, and the J-B Weld 31919.
The Eastwood 51655 is purpose made for sealing body seams and replacement floor pans. It has just the right consistency when cured to form a waterproof seal but keep everything in place. We included the Permatex and the J-B Weld because they can be used for metal seams but since they are RTV silicones, they come in handy for most silicone needs. Keep in mind that these are not oil-resistant. Special oil-resistant silicone is needed for parts that are meant to come in contact with oils.
Auto repair can be dangerous and should only be performed by trained technicians to avoid personal injury or damage to equipment.
