started cutting and welding today .. started on the drivers side vertical pillar , and worked my way up
when cutting the uppers , you need to be sure not to cut to deep , as there are corner roof supports in there ... they are usually ok , as they are underneath the corners . also , you need to seal the bare metal .. I use zinc "weld threw primer" .. I will also seal everything from the inside as best I can when I'm done .
Tacking the new piece in place , and working with the "heat" very slowly
and moving in sections .. as with the corners , the roof header also has a support , so be sure not to cut it ...
so basically done for the moment ... I waiting for a delivery I have coming from Japan with the OE rubber windshield weatherstrip . along the bottom of the windshield opening , the dash bolts there , and there is a flange there , I assume to "hide" the glue area , and urethane ooze on the bottom . pretty sure I will need to cut this off for the thickness of the new weatherstrip to fit , but I just want to make sure
