It would be a wise choice and will also leave you with peace-of-mind that the floor seams are weather tight...Important for when that new carpet goes in.

Just a quick though on your floor rehab. I have removed the trim/carpet glue with mineral spirits. I soak some rags in it and lay them on the spot until the glue is softened up. A wipe down with some fresh solvent and a clean rag to remove the residue. Dry the area then use the wire wheel for rust/scale removal. I use a pannel adhesive to glue in the floor plugs before applying the floor coating.then apply my coating to the floor. I will then use body calk on the seams and reapply the coating over the sealer in an attempt to make the seam weather proof

One other thing that I forgot to mention- make sure your seam sealer is made to go over a primer or coating. There are different kinds some are made to go directly over bare metal and will have adhesion problems over primer or a coating. Sem,Lord and 3-M all have great products for this as well as Evercoat. All should be available at your local body shop supply company.

I just use seam sealer on everything but I have been saving some of the black tar type stuff that was factory. It can be melted down and used again. I figuredthat out one day when torching out some panels and the heat turned that old stuff to liquid and it sealed itself up again so I experimented a bit and the results were pretty good. Keeping the stuff hot enough to brush it on is the tricky part.
