This weekend I dropped my skid plate to repair leaky transmission pan. Not a fun task but I did what i had to do. I had to Heli-Coiled two bolts on the back side of the pan to fix the leak. The frame and the skid plate both had some rust issues so I cleaned all the rust, applied some rust treatment and repainted where the two bolt together. Is this sufficient to prevent frame rot or do I need to take more measures to prevent any further issues. I was thinking about taking some liquid gasket and sealing the connection basically making a gasket to keep water from getting in. I'm waiting on the replacement Nutserts today and plan on having Jolene up and running tonight.
Just wondering if anyone has thought of this or if it will create more problems down the road?
