Re: Hi from MaineVette!

Hey guys, I guess I've been away a few days. Looks like a few more faces have checked in. :cool: I'm hoping to make it out into the garage today, perhaps I'll be able to make a bit more progress.

Re: Update

You said it was OM approved and a bit stronger than the regular adhesive, but what will that mean if you (or any other owner) ever have to seperate the parts later on down the road? Let's just say I would never want to have to remove this stuff. I tested out a sample on some old junk panel pieces a...

I had to double check my AIM to make sure I knew what I was talking about before posting this... :ROFL: No cushions on my 71, just a couple of steel shims go betwee...

Re: Heat gun

I was reading your updates on the rear clip and see that you used a heat gun which seems to work good, is that something that would of worked when you removed the front clip and fire wall.
