Time to replace both rear quarters on my 2003 Silverado long bed. I have both GM panels that are primed with the factory electro deposited primer. Doesnt wash off with lacquer thinner.
I wont be getting to this project until late summer or fall. Is there a primer or sealer that I can use that will protect the panels over the winter? Undercoating wont be a problem, just worried about top coat drying properly. Truck is garaged , but I will have to take it out to plow my driveway. So is there a product I can use that will winter over or if I cant move up the project should I wait until next year.

If you are planning on installing them now but not painting them until next year, I would just wait to replace them and paint them right after you get them on.

Thanks Ray. I was hoping that they came up with a new type of sealer. So my choices will be move up the schedule or procrastinate ( one of my strong points!).
