That's exactly what I did...worked great, but an FYI is that the paint softened the foam and made it concave. Not a big deal, though.




arrggg... bad idea. that expanding foam stuff retains water. We used some expanding foam to fill some internal caveties for a custom boat hull we made. 2 years after it was last used we decided to "recycle" it so we cut it up to make some modifications, all that foam stuff was just sopping with water... not even sure how it got in there.

That sucks. I thought that stuff was supposed to be suitable for outdoor use...two different welders that I spoke to thought it would be a good idea as long as it was coated with something, i.e paint or silicone sealant, once it was trimmed.

Got them installed today. I hit them with about 3 coats of some rust free paint. Then hit the welds afterwards. Oh, i absolutely love them!!!
