Re: .::DIY::. Rubber seals

That expanding foam is nuts...

I used it to fill dis-used plug sockets in my living room when I decorated. It's not easy to apply that's for sure.

I just went overkill with it and cut the excess with a very sharp craft knife blade, finished with polyfila and it was ok.

And, christ it's toxic! Well ventilated areas and all that!

Re: .::DIY::. Rubber seals

Surely, the next time one of us has to get a seal from Fiat is to pass it onto one of those comapnies that can reproduce them before fitting it.

I wonder if they give commision?

Re: .::DIY::. Rubber seals

yeh i think you'd be better filling them with some other sealent, not expanding foam.

expanding foam isnt very spongy once dried, and i can see it expanding unevenly tbh.
