RUST FIX (HOW TO) door skin inside edge.

Post by 4SPEED on Thu Dec 09, 2010 12:56 pm

(WARNING)
SOME PICS MAY BE DISTURBING TO THE PURIST, as some parts are destroyed to make a good piece.



I was asked how to fix the rusted lip of the skin on the inside. so I'll do a short how to here.
first the rust pics. then I'll get it striped and the rust off it and will have more pics of the fix







wire wheel/grind out all the rust, then wash/blow it out , epoxy it.


(LOOK AWAY AT THIS POINT)

you need a junk lid with a good donor piece


more later

I'm going to spare you the details of the other lid.






add some glass filler , and some elbow grease and you'll be ready to seam seal it. and done




3m seam sealer. comes in a tube of caulk. about 18 to 20 bucks. dont use the el'cheap'o crap. it drys out and cracks.

already have the doors done

Nice work on that rust.


You do some high quality body work.

I wish you were located in Connecticut instead of Ohio because I would ask you to do some body work for me...lol
