What if you use liquid nails to secure the plastic to the glass?

If you have to use them at all think I would use anything that said it would bond both "plastic" and "fiberglass" that had some gap filling ability. I like 2 part epoxy. I have glued them on first, before I start wiring, that gives me a route to follow.

All I know is that every time I get a car in my shop that has those pads with the double faced tape on them, they are swinging in air and the wire bundle is swinging with them. Usually the tape is still on the plastic part.

Anywhere I can I use screws and cable clamps. I have epoxied stud plates to a firewall so the screw would not show from the outside.

Later, mikey

We find that at work also. When we get a wired panel from a vendor that does not use Panduit and uses those funky stick-on things we usually wind up replacing them all with Panduit duct. I would not even think about using them on my project.

The seat is absolutely awesome, totally worth the wait and price. It is so comfortable, much more so than the OEM buckets I had planned on using.

Almost there

Well the electrical is almost finished. I'm having trouble getting the Dakota Digital Automatic Door Lock Controller to respond. Will be giving them a call tomorrow for some tech support. I am also waiting on some Weather Pak connectors for the exterior lighting, seems there is always something you forget . No, I have not had it on the street yet, the brakes need bleeding and a few other things. First on the agenda is a front end alignment and a State inspection so I can get my license plates.

When you get some time, I'd love to know your 'secret' for spraying a metallic in different sessions, locations, etc. and have it match like that. Your technique must be like a robot or something...
I know that was PPG DBC or something expensive, would that color look as good in the cheaper lines, Omni or Nason Fullthane??

Fantastic job!!

No secret involved. just made sure I was getting adequate coverage and mixing consistently. The DBC is really forgiving, and that particular color covers real well.

Thanks guys
Vince

Hey Vince; Thanks again for the paint code. Had some mixed up for me. Did a 6x6 card and man is that one nice colour. Its not the DBC formula as it is not available here but another ppg variable. Looks like it is going to cover really well. Its exactly what I have been looking for. The 34 is looking sweet!

Thanks Again! John

Wow, I can't keep up, I haven't worked on my car since the 19th of Dec 2006, last year due to mom went in the hospital. I've got to get mom tuned up and back on the road before the car, I think the mom deal is harder then the car build.

Looking good 302/Z28, if you get done I can give you the keys to my garage it almost the same build.

Regards,

Steve

Just read through the whole post from start to finish and I have got to say....
GREAT JOB. That car looks amazing. Something like this should be posted with every car at a show, the majority of the public just has no idea what goes into these things we do. I've run across a few people who think buying a spray gun qualifies them to do an overall paint job on a show car as well. They learn the hard way real quick.
I'd also like to say Thank You for taking the time to take all those photos and posting them here with updates. It really helps give people hope to get their own projects done.
The more you can see it being done the more confidence it gives you to keep going with your own plans.

Again, Really great job. I hope you get many years enjoyment out of it and that people know what they are looking at when you take it to shows and cruises!

Building of a Hot Rod.

It sure came out GREAT from top to bottom and in and out im wondering what it's worth I know you would never sell it such a master piece is hard to come by especially when you did most of the work get a LOWJACK installed in it in case someone takes it. Five Star Work. Roland Get some good looking plates for it so that it match's it.
