Pinch Seam

Recommended Posts

With the new tires, they are looking closer and closer to the punch seam everyday.

Who's trimmed theirs?

Sawzall? Cutoff wheel?

JB Weld? Is there a specific type?

Pictures?

HELP!

I just beat mine in with a hammer and that was enough.  Other people's I've done with a cut-off wheel.  I feel more in control with the cut-off wheel than I do with a sawzall.

Just picked up some more cut off wheels, and a big 7" wheel for my angle grinder(incase Bump and Iggy want to do more u joints...)

Do you fill it in after you cut with JB Weld? I swear I've read that somewhere. No clue though.

If there is a void, fill it with JB Weld, sand it, paint it.

Yes, this.  Lots of JB Weld, and use blue painter's tape until it sets to keep it from dripping out.  On Joe's we used that epoxy putty stuff, I haven't looked to see how it's holding-up.
