Body Work

Over the last couple weeks I've been working on the body of my truck. I am not going all out, just enough to get it inspected. (I only put about 300 miles a year on it in hunting season mostly)
I ordered some body panels and riveted them on but there are still some gaps because there was little or no original body left. My question is should I do something with those gaps? Should I fill them with foam or just make sure they are painted/sealed really well.

...but those that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. -Isaiah 40:31

Re: Body Work

Don't use foam it holds moisture, if the gaps are wide you can use a fiberglass filler.
