I've read/heard/saw somewhere that you can use Latex caulk on seams on body work and paint over it and be OK. True? False?

I'm looking for some type of "filler" that won't crack easily. And I'm not doing a professional paint job either, so as long as Rustoleum sticks, I'm good. Only thing I'm worried about would be if I pushed it in with my finger, would the paint flake off?

They make an AutoBody sealant (3m), 3M™ Ultrapro™ Autobody Sealant, 08302, Clear. But its small and $$.

They now make paintable silicon caulking, which would be a better fit for filling body seams and little holes, because the paint can "flex" without losing its grip on the sealant. Any home center will have it, but I would buy a dark color to begin with, like a brown or a tan, so if it flakes off it won't look as crappy.

some of these seemed reasonably priced.
