    I was planning on using latex caulk when I do the restoration. I keep saying that and was going to do it this winter but I've had 5 colds since September and haven't spent much time out in my garage.

    I used latex caulk to seal the seams in the rear wheel wells on my Fiat Spider some 20 years ago. I sprayed asphalt under coating and painted over top of it and so far it has held up. Pininfarnia did not seal these seams where the rear wheel wells were spot welded together so water get's slung up between the cracks, get's trapped and the quarter panels and rust from the inside out.

    So far so good. I do get caught in the rain in all my cars but I keep all my cars except my van out of the weather when not in use.
