Exclamation Temporary Fix

Has anyone ever tried using peel & seal on floor pans to seal water out of small holes? If so, can you get it off when your ready for permanent fix? I'm told they use this sticky rubber membrane on roofs and to sound proof cars for the audiophiles.Shitty job done by PO"s welding in floor pan on drivers side, burn thru holes and places that didn't get covered at all. I'm in New Hampshire, lots of snow, road salt & wet thru the winter. I,m looking for an inexpensive TEMPORARY fix till spring.I Thank you all for taking your time to answer these newbee questions!!

I no nothing about peel and seal but silicone would be a quick and easy way..fiberglass would be a little more work but not a lot and would be permanent

I've used that stuff before. I used "quickroof" from home depot. I used it as a sound deadener in my beetle floor pans. It works well. It's easy to work with, and I'm only assuming it would be an absolute nightmare to remove it. If you're going to do this, i would make sure you treat any corrosion before you seal it away or you'll be peeling this crap off what used to be your floor board.

Go to an autobody supply store and buy a tube of autobody seam sealer (looks like a tube of caulking). Works good, sticks good when you sand and clean the area, and doesn't get affected by salt and snow. Easy to remove when you go for the permanent fix, and re-use when you finish the new floor...just like factory. Paintable and hardens nice, just like factory sealant...same stuff.

Thank all of you for your continued help with this new endevor.I'm absolutely lovin it.Dont think I will go with the peel & seal, like you said, have a rough time with getting it off for the permanent fix.Do you think that fiberglassing will hold up with light off roading?I have some experience with it , but didn't think it would hold.I've used it on boat repairs and have had great results.THANKS ALL

If the holes aren't bare metal and aren't too large i would just leave them. Honestly i removed all my drain plugs in the floor of my jeep and water isn't really an issue. just a thought.
