10-17-2014 09:52 PM Doors and Fenders
Did not get as much done today as I would have hoped. The doors took forever to clean up. But, they are ready to go. Tomorrow they will get a final scuff with a red pad, wipe down with acetone, wipe down with wax and grease remover, and tack rag.

Nothing went right on the fenders. The aircraft paint remover barely touched the paint on the rear fenders. It didn't touch the inside of the front fenders so I stopped working on them as I knew there would not be enough time.

I did get the rear fenders ready, almost. The mounting flanges and a few other spots will need to be sandblasted tomorrow AM. If they clean up OK, they will get primered as well as the doors tomorrow.

Took vaca today and tomorrow. Hoping to get the rest of the body in primer Saturday.

The sound deadener (probably asbestos and PCB!) was removed from the driver's door. Both doors were cleaned with xylene and acetone. Then Marine Clean and Metal Prep. Finally, POR-15 was applied. A very messy job.

Trimmed the top piece to the bottom piece. Used a heat gun to do a little fine tuning on the fit and adhesion. Done!

Did the final trimming of the first panel. Removed the Clecos one by one, drilling the holes to 1/4'' as they came out, and popped in the Auvecos.

The masking paper was to prevent the landau top adhesive from getting on the trunk lid. Hind sight being 20-20, I should have removed the paper after I sprayed the adhesive but before I put the outer panel on. Live and learn. Anyway, the outer panel is attached and setting up. Hopefully I will get it trimmed up tomorrow.

Tonight I trimmed the panel to fit, opened the hinge mounting areas, the support mounting area, and the hole for the wiring harness. I hope to glue the top panel on tomorrow night after drilling and installing the Auvecos.
