Thread: Started work on 1269

  1. #71
    I'd be willing to learn about fiberglass repair.

    I think I'll make a grill out of styrofoam; I dabble in art so I have blocks of that stuff laying around. Then I'll probably make the 'DMC" logo out of beads, which I also seem to have a million of.

    Have fun with that closing plate

    I actually have two. I plan to make a cool shield for the nephew with at least one of them.

    For the moment, I'm mainly focusing on cosmetics:

    Trim panel started drooping/ falling out every time I opened or closed the passenger door; it was a case of missing fir trees, so I ordered a pack of those along with the sidestripe

    Fiberglass around passenger's side striker pin has been repaired and repainted: 20170715_184452.jpg
    Dash crack has been repaired and dash is currently getting repainted: 20170715_184739.jpg
    Door sills looked filthy and dusty no matter how many times I cleaned them so I repainted those as well: 20170715_171827.jpg20170715_172142.jpg

    Repairs are looking nice.

    Did you paint the door sills with a brush? Yeah, mine wouldnt clean up very well either..so I used a brush and rag and acetone..which cleaned them pretty good, then sprayed them with sem trim black.

    Thanks.

    Yep, I always paint by hand. I just spray the SEM in the lid and dip my brush as needed.

    Two reasons lol:

    1. I'm an artist
    2. Sometimes I just like to do things the old-fashioned way
