Replacing a few sections of the firewall on my dads old willys jeep. Is it acceptable to use a little silicon bronze in a few tight areas? This isn’t anything structural, just basically to fill a little spot to keep water & moisture out.

I'd be more inclined to use automotive panel bond vs a product that has silicone in it. Silicone doesn't play very nice with some automotive paints.

Absolutely nothing wrong with silicon brazing rod, silicon and ---------( silicone ) are two different things , silicon is of the carbon family with a atomic weight of 14 , silicone is a totally different substance it is from the polymer family.

Thanks for the warning, I wasn’t meaning silicone like Lutz is famous for. Silicon bronze tig rod was what I was getting at….don’t feel bad rodent, on my old 55 I had to fix a lot of very questionable repairs done by previous people.

You could always do the random piece of aluminum laying around and pop rivets....1WCG style!
