What does AMAS look like? Detailed explanation of use of sealants in common areas of leaks – includes information on the sealant, application, seal time, dry time and example of use.
The Training Information Section is complete with detailed explanation of how to use various sealants – this is one example Black Liquid Metal – sealant Container: 1 quart silver metal cans Appearance and characteristics: thick black liquid. Application: 1. Poured straight out of the can - over a seam into a hard to seal area like a seam behind a fender from the plenum. 2. Sprayed out of a schutz gun - over a hard to get seam or area under a dash board. 3. Sprayed over a dum dum seal for insurance. 4. Poured out of a squeeze bottle - over a seam where neatness counts. Use black liquid metal on a clean dry area. 5. Applied with an acid brush. Always use liquid metal on a clean dry area. Seal time: one to four hours Dry time: 24 hours Example of use: 1. Remove the plenum cover. Pour 1 quart of black liquid metal into the plenum drain to seal the cowl seam behind the fender. 2. Remove the left front floor carpet trim. Remove the detner from the inner top cowl/dash seam area. Seal the factory sealer skip with dum dum. Water test the left front floor area. Spray over the dum dum with black liquid metal. 3. Remove the right side plenum cover. Clean the area around the top fender bolt with mineral spirits. Squeeze out 1/2 pint of black liquid metal over the top fender bolt. Install plenum cover. Don't test for 24 hours.

Hazardous Material - Always dispose of hazardous materials (i.e. chemicals) in a safe manner. NEVER put the environment at risk! Knowledge of Leaks - AMAS will show you the repair for a leak--this does not mean it is the ONLY repair or cause of a leak.
