When seam sealing new pans do you seam seal just the top (inside) or both the top and bottom (underneath) of the new pans.

Actual seam sealer dries pretty hard and is an adhesive.

Only the bottom is really needed and that's what I do unless I want to hide some ugly welds that didnt clean up nicely Laughing
