Part 14: Chopping the Top III
Time now to close the gap on the rear deck area between the window and trunk.
The drip rails above the door jamb and side windows were cut away giving the roof and car smoother and cleaner flowing lines when viewed from the rear.
Rear and side window areas skimmed and sanded.
Front views of the car before and after the roof was chopped.
Roof primered. NOTE: Rain gutter has been removed.
Since the body was chemical bathed several years ago, I noticed lately that rust had formed under the weather strip moldings in the door openings. I decided to remove them and glass blast around the door openings. I'll now have to glue weather stripping either on the doors or on the openings themselves instead of using the stock Studebaker weather stripping.
