Re: convertible pics

Gentlemen,
When I install new taillight panel........
1) I will reinstall trunk lid first.
2) Plan to install ratchet strap from Convertible well brace to fuel filler hole.
3) Trying to duplicate the slight curve in top of panel ( replacement seems to arrow straight)
4) Will weld to center trunk support when trunk lid closes correct.
I am asking for any input from y'all don't what to mess this up

Feel free to advise
Thanks
Cman

Ya know JK, I really hate to criticize cman66's very long & hard work...it certainly looks like in the beginning he did some extraordinary restoration here.

But being that I'm a out spoken sort of guy, I have to point out that his last photo shows disapointing progress. It just doesn't seem like it's coming together correctly....can't put my finger on it exactly, but it seems, er, off.

Re: convertible pics

Ya know cman66, we all do those dumb a__ things...don't let it bother u.

PS. I admire u'r dedication in sticking to a very long & arduous project (something I would never have the guts to try)...enjoy it soon!

Don't the mods think this thread should really be posted in the Tech section...it's kind of hidden here.

Re: convertible pics

My last post was May 2019.
Shortly after that time I began a series of health issues.
Won't bore you guys with the details.
I have not been able to work on my car until now.
Began by finishing the left side interior door corner.
Can anyone suggest a rust proofing product that will be ok to topcoat with ppg epoxy primer.
Thanks

Re: convertible pics

Rudi,
I was ok when we posted with tinypic.
I just can't seem to figure out the latest process.
It's just me , I see others post photos all the time.
You know one day I will learn all the dance steps,
then ya'll will be sick of the pictures of Ol Paint .

Repairs to left door latch mounting dimples.
All dimples were broken out and door had a repair plate glued in this area.
Salvaged some dimples from used door, welded in place with extra door latch locating dimples.
