Do you think someone put screws in the rubber seals to hold them in place in place until glue dried and just never removed them.

These screws are about 3" up from the door bottoms and come from the outside of the car into the door. They've been mudded and painted over.

I see some 68 SS doors have a molding about the same level as the screws.

Crank handles, and door lever appear to be new also.

At ease, man. New manual regulators is a nice find in my book. Thats a plus if you ask me. Long as they work nice. My 68 Malibu had a molding down there and we went black below it. Nobody keeps it. Surf around, you'll see. You know the rest of the story. Lets wish that they welded them after cutting them off. Eh? Hang in there hoss. Mood metal below.

Here are the usual huge by large by a dozen angle glory shots of my wildly mediocre task. I'm gaining on it!

I thought so. Its a brighter maroon, kinda unique. Like butternut, its a color that really takes you back in time if you are an authentic retro vibe enthusiast. It is a solid, non-metallic color. I think the molding and accent color is sharp, myself.

I got my trim tool and took off a piece.
It doesn’t appear to be rotten. Maybe it’s bondo and paint?

I’ll take more off tonight. Had to run.

From here on the tiny screen that looks like just a liberal application of adhesive, like one might see if the window bed had some pitting.

On the 59 Pontiac job... we had a spare truck bed repair section collecting dust in the shop so I cut it to length and bent the edges down then added 14 ga brackets at the ends to make this axle hump floor section a piece o cake. Two nearly flat panels will close off the horizontal part.

Just sanding my little heart out. No need for a picture. It would just look like the last few I've posted.

Front hub/bearing on the Impala is done. That thing is a gift that keeps on giving... Checked the oil and the part of the handle that fits down in the tube broke off. Yay. Dipstick in the van is too short to swap directly, so I swapped the handles. Always something...

Today was the end of the line for my teenage Goodyears, rears on the '69. A proper ceremony was had.They were remarkably noble servants.





Heres the other two Cat hump pieces. Front and top panels are in place for good, rear one lacks weld prep. The big 16 ga flat piece you saw yesterday slips in between the two 18 ga layers of the pan at the row of weld holes so that will be a sturdy three layers. We put a quarter glass in to check out tub prospects. Need tires. Thats a wrap for this week, taking tomorrow off.
