So I decided to take on and attempt this repair and paint, these hacks have so much construction adhesive in the channel my old gasket wouldn't fit. I know the right way is to cut out the bad stuff and weld in new but I can't do that so I was thinking of making a tape mold and use J B weld that I could shape or I have a roll of thin aluminum I could fashion some pieces and rivet or epoxy them on. Most of it gets covered by the gasket so I don't need to be to picky about it. I also ordered a spray can of 1K base/clear from Paintscratch.com for the area around the lip that was not painted well. I started sanding the clear down but how far do I have to go before priming and painting, was planning on using an etching primer then paint. I'm not sure what kind of paint it is but it seems pretty brittle and guessing it was painted 10 or more years ago. Any suggestions are welcome as I know just enough to be dangerous.
