Going to be doing the seam sealer in my gutters. Likely I'll be using 3M 08307 Self leveling From here:

And the 3M 08571 applicator gun seen here:

My question is how many of the seam sealers will I need to go all the way around the gutter on a 1985 Chevy mid-length? I was thinking 2? But I don't want to buy too much, or more worse come up short. There is all kinds of info out there, but nothing that I could find about how far it might go.

is this to keep them from filling with crap? or are they rusty and leaky?

The original seal sealer was all old and cracked (even missing in spots). I've chiseled/wire wheeled the rest of the old seam sealer out and am going to replace with new.

tuner4life, I'm about to do the same project. Was the 3 plenty? Would you use that product again?

Looked through his build thread and he said 3 just barely covered the mid length Chevy. He recommended 4.
