123pugsy This Mopar, Plymouth?, pulled into the cruise night Tuesday. Nice connection at the cowl. I couldn't see anything in the crack when I looked.

But you are TIGing and the other part did fine, eh? With the MIG, half inch is my limit on skins. Five dots and better stop, and better be tacks at both ends of the half inch. Totally different though. You can handle it. Anybody who lays seam sealer as slick as you did gets no worries from me.

I'll throw in a Howdy, Randy. Been a spell. Take good care.

I'm attempting to do it without the welting.
Some kind of thin rubber or something in there.
Welting may still be used. I have a feeling towards the end, I will do anything to get it going.

idrivejunk Still looks very good to me. In that situation, you could wrap 36 or 40 grit around a piece of metal or stir stick or spreader and go in and out with it rather than along the seam, and get that little bit of helpful equalization which is allowable by grinding. This is with panel a little loose probably since the fit is tight. At least the on-car gap sanding gives you marks to read when you take the panels apart to address it. Thank you for bringing the sketch to life. What you're doing is cool stuff so "get in the mood now!" to enjoy it. We are.

Time to move to the other side.
