I know that you can use metal and fiber glass to fill in big holes. is there any thing else that will work to fill in funky angles and pieces that are hidden from exhaust fumes??? anything besides duct tape, LOL

I use just plain fiberglass in small odd spots.

I'm not sure exactly where you are trying to seal up but I'm guessing that access might be an issue.

At your hardware store you can find a metal tape, about the width of duct tape, that is used to seal A/C and heating ducts. Then there is always the spray in expanding foam used to insulate cracks on homes.

that metal tape works pretty well as does the spray foam. I was hoping for something solid, but fiberglass might have to work.

I have a big hole where the rear tray used to be, and then a ton of little hols and areas where exhaust can leak in back thar.

How about forming a piece of thin metal like roof flashing and pop riveting or use sheet metal screws over the big hole? Then you could put small pieces of metal tape over the smaller holes and cover the whole area with spray in bed liner (aerosol type) to seal the real small holes.

I didn't know you had a welder. Why not just tack in a patch section?

If the tape patches are small enough you ought to be ok with the spray. The tape is a pretty slick surface. Then again, you might just be better off sealing the smaller holes with JB Weld. After it cures you can rough up the surface. I used it in a few spots on the pan of my Manx and then shot bedliner over the pan.

Dont use the bed liner over the tape. You cant rough it up to spray the liner on.
