Anyone do this? I pulled one today as I needed to, and found a bunch of pinch welds that are blistered. I'll hose it down as I button up, but am thinking it might be good to pull these liners (inner fenders?) every few years for this.

I would scrape the blistered paint off.

Brush on some Fluid Film to work into the seam & around welds.

Then slap on some Never-Seize.

I try to do the most with the least.
I buy Never-Seize in the 8 Oz can.
Using a acid brush, I coat any threads, brake lines, etc.

Yep. I do it yearly, or at least spray a good heavy coat behind them when I don't have time to yank them.
