    First off, welcome to NastyZ, secondly, great work on the floors, wiring and interior as well, the insulation is work, but very well worth it.

    It makes it so much better with a supportive spouse, sometimes that's what makes the difference seeing a project getting to the finish line.

    Congrat's, and keep us updated, enjoy the journey.

    Anywhere in NY seems to do a job on our cars. Glad to see another member nearby. I'll be looking for you at next summers shows.

    3M Panel bond. My friend does body repair for a living and that was his suggestion.

    had to google this interesting. Quote from the net:
    I read somewhere that a normal weld has a tensile strength of 1500 psi where the 3m panel bond has a tensile strength of 3,000-4,000 psi. So the Adhesive is plenty strong for the project I am working on Heck, Mercedes, BMW etc has some cars now that are almost completely glued together using this type of adhesive

    It's pretty amazing what this stuff is capable of. Another advantage is that it completely seals as it bonds. We still seam sealed everything inside and out. Welding also naturally creates oxidation during the process. I was skeptical when he first mentioned doing it this way but if it's good enough for McLaren to build their cars with I figured it would be ok for this project.
