Getting ready for a meeting next weekend so please don't think I'm not willing top assist you with your project. Just wanted to let you know that time is short for me this next week and a half.

Bottom line is yes, if it were me I would clean some of the areas off and overcoat them with a darker product and at the same time this will help build them up to a more factory thickness. In the interior I would leave what is there since it will not be viewed and it appears that what was applied will do the job.

In an effort to stay on track and organized let me prepare a response for each area (trunk, exterior, front wheelwells....) to reduce the possible confusion and make smaller bites of the whole project.

Does this work for you??

Ok here are some examples of how they were applying seam sealer at San Jose around your car's build date.

I've included a few pictures where I highlighted the area covered by the sprayed on sealant. If you look closely you will notice that where the wheel tubs are attached to the trunk floor a bead of sealant was applied with a chalking gun prior to being sprayed with the sealant as a second application.

WHEEL TUBS TO FLOORS AND FLOOR TO FLOOR SEAM


















Hope this helps - Will post pictures for the other areas of focus soon
