Jack - It is such a real shame that you had so much extra work to un-bond the body shell.

Hopefully, this is the last of the backward steps you will have to take.

Glad to see the parcel tape trick worked, as your headliner looks good.
( If a little sideways. )



Good luck, Paul.

Thanks Paul, waiting for a rear bumper support shelf from Chris to set the rear body height.
I'll have to pie cut the rear fenders to fit my wires, only about one-inch. More grinding I'm afraid.

Received my parts from Chris today, Stoked!
Shipped ACE a headliner part that I made for him and my
Body will be prepped tomorrow for re-fitting.

Need opinions about Tiger seal as adhesive for bonding the
body back on please.

Tiger seal should be ok Jack,

Stixall is good and there is a new product over here called CTI they are all PU based and should work well.

Glad to see you have turned the corner and are moving forward.

I will get the vent sorted for you in a week or so.

Tiger Seal is the business. Don't expect to save a half-used tube however. Would need serious anti-moisture measures to prevent it setting. Sikaflex is a good alternative but costs double. Stixall is a Sika product and is a good all-round adhesive/sealant.

Laying out to pie cut the rear wheel arches. Need to gain 1.5 inches each side for my 15x7 wires. May have to make multiple cuts to keep a pleasing look. Fronts should be okay as is.

Finished the pie cuts on the rears. Glassed back together both inside and out. Pretty easy with the body upside down.
While I'm at it, I will reduce the size of the wheel arch return flanges to make them appear as wired or rolled edges.

Final skim of kitty hair and regular filler and a bit more sanding before high-build primer.

Moving right along.

As soon as my Grassbank parcel shelf arrives I'll finish the headliner and cheek panel upholstery. Them body goes back on.

Quite a bit of bodywork to do then as well.
