Two yrs ago I repaired both wheel wells on a dodge Dakota truck bed , now the truck had 130,thousand plus miles and was for a teen learning to drive so I figured perfect time to try and experiment on a adhesive repair, I used Lord Fusor panel adhesive, medium set, followed their prep instructions per their website, curious to see if it would ghost line, nine months later it did, on both wheel wells on the vertical sides about six inches up each side it ghost lined,..... across the top it did not, ... maybe I did something wrong for prep ? but for now I`ll continue to weld them in

I've read about this in several places. I'm thinking it won't show through U-Pol Raptor bedliner, if it does I really don't care.

I'm thinking something is wrong with lay up or not removing excess may be culprit.
All lay ups should fit snug and Tight with no gaps and all excess should be wiped away.
