    Well, I decided to get the windshield re-set and the rear window replaced altogether. I knew they leaked a bit, but didn’t realize how bad until I pulled the masking tape from around the perimeter. It’s been on there since I started sanding on the body. The wet sand residue migrated around about 40% of the rear glass. Both windows were set poorly in urethane at some point. So, until I get the windshield in, the front sheet metal won’t be going on. It’s ok, I’ve got a million other little things that can be done in the meantime.

    What a mess, really should have done this before paint. Plus side is I have access to pro window install equipment, so more than likely I’ll be setting the glass myself. image.jpg E71D84E5-C4A4-4C96-8558-9E317ACE6D68.jpeg FE44223D-31EA-40EB-AA73-B9DB67D57C3E.jpeg DBAACD61-6B79-45DB-8515-2D6D7BD084E1.jpeg

    Well, it's all cleaned up and patched up after another marathon weekend. I knew the A-pillars were questionable and didn't really want to open that can, but did anyway. I have a hard time half assing stuff so I patched with sheet metal. Broke the windshield getting it out even though I was trying to be super careful. Oh well, it had a few deep scratches that would have bugged me.
    Trying to decide on paint for the dash top and rear deck. Thinking flat rustoleum with hardener added to bring back a little sheen. Just worried about UV fade. Thoughts?
