    Trunk drop off plugs

    OK, I have one of these used on the pass side trunk floor. For some reason I thought these would be rubber not steel. Thanks!

    Trunk drop off plugs

    I installed new drop offs that have the drain hole punched. What plugs go in these and are they reproduced?

    Roof/quarter joint

    I have read people using Vette panel adhesive as a filler here. Anybody else try it on a 2nd gen?

    Roof/quarter joint

    I installed new quarters and fully welded the roof to quarter seam. Other than lead, what have others used to fill?

    Roof to Quarter gap

    I was worried the strip of metal would be too thin and vaporize but I'll give it a shot. It'll be stronger I guess and less chance of stress Crack propegation.

    Roof to Quarter gap

    I put new quarters on my 74 and slipped them under the original roof. I welded the edge of the roof skin to the quarter but this gap remains around the rear window. It is the result of the top of the 1/4 recess where it wraps into the channel. It looks like there is a bulge in the pic but rest...

    Attaching trunk drop off to trunk floor - panel bond?

    Bill, would you use 108B on the drop offs and also where the quarter meets the rocker (that is a 100% blind area) too? This area, not my pic. I need a solution for that also. I see fusor also offers a 2098 slow cure structural that is 2 part. Looks to fit a regular HD caulk gun. Would that...

    Good to hear. What is the recommended goop? 3M stuff?

    Attaching trunk drop off to trunk floor - panel bond?

    I am about to start attaching outer wheelhouses and trunk dropoffs to my 74. Wheelhouses seem straightforward. I'm going to plugweld those. But the drop off flange where it connects to the trunk floor looks difficult to access with a mig torch. It seems the best way to get in there is to drill...

    Full quarter alignment

    Think I can get a couple people to grab this rough measurement from the side of the leaf to the point of the quarter? Both sides would be best.

    Full quarter alignment

    I don't remember it welded either but it definitely looks like it needs to close in. Is there a measurement spec for the distance between the frame rail and the point of the lower rear quarter formed by the rear corner of the wheel opening?

    Full quarter alignment

    I am fitting aftermarket outer wheelhouses, trunk drop offs and quarters on my 74. I have it all mocked up with sheetmetal screws other than the bottom of the rear quarter and wheel opening. The one area I am stuck with is the match under the taillight. The drop off and quarter have a small lip...

    B/C vs SS with solid color

    I will be painting my 74 code 74 Medium red. A non metallic also known as Pontiac Buccaneer red. Not sure of the system I will use but plan on urethane. Advantages of using a B/C on a single non-metallic color vs a single stage???

    Spoiler paint removal

    I would use a jitterbug palm sander to get past the failed clear and seal it. No need to get down to the base material.

    Harbor Freight 220v spot welder?

    I'm replacing trunk floor, drop offs, outer wheel houses and quarters on my 74. I am prepared to plug weld everything but am pondering the 220V HF spot welder that would reach about half of the locations. I believe I can use it for drop offs to trunk floor (probably easier than trying to plug...

    Treating rust in cowl areas

    The rest of the car is stripped to bare steel so I don't want to flush with water. That's why I like the Picklex 20. Needs the excess to be blown off or ragged off but once dry, its ready to coat. No rinse needed. Turns out I was able to peek into the area thru the vent holes better than I...

    Treating rust in cowl areas

    My car has some heavy rust corrosion within the side cowl areas down low and some tiny pinholes in an area completely hidden by the fender when it is installed. I can feel the rust by reaching in thru the kick panel vent holes but otherwise very inaccessible to knock down with a wire brush or...

    Trunk floor repair

    After more work and stripping the inside of the trunk to bare metal I found more issues hidden by a coat of seam sealer covered in spatter paint. The rust damage is localized to the entirety of the drivers side lower pan, a small depression on the pass side near the tail panel (both surely from...
