3-11-2018 – S10 Door

Finished up the drivers side door.  Putting off the 3rd door for a while – might have a friend that does bodywork do that one.  This tool was key to getting the door to line up properly to close.  Slides into the latch and striker then you use leverage to tweak it into place:

Finally closes!

and opens!

Swapped out the mirror and weather strip from original door:

Interior swapped!
Still need to do the 3rd door and eventually paint the driver’s door, but at least it is much better now!

Floor – Primed

A little behind on updating.  The Labor Day progress wasn’t as good as expected between other life commitments and the weather.  I did get the floor primed, but not undercoated.  The project will most likely sit over the winter.  Next summer will have to be the undercoat and working on the suspension 2018-2019.  I have a large tree to take down and have a Cataract dealt with.

The rotisserie mounts will be painted after I take it off the rotisserie next summer:

Masking off:

Gray Epoxy:

Then some black Epoxy:

After 3 coats of Epoxy, some seam sealer:

There are a couple of spots I want to touch-up before applying the undercoat.  Going to have to scuff the epoxy before applying the Raptor bedliner for the undercoat.  Might not be much more to report until Spring arrives!

Firewall Painted

Worked on the firewall that last few days.  3 coats epoxy primer, seal sealer and 3 coats paint:

Masked to protect other areas I didn’t want over spray on:

1st coat epoxy:

2nd coat epoxy:

3rd coat epoxy

Waited until the next day and seal sealed where needed using both caulking gun and brushable seal sealer:

Got a little where I didn’t intend to – it was ok since I was painting over it anyways – removed what I could get:

3 coats paint the day after seam sealing:

Next steps are to prime and undercoat the floor, unhook the rotisserie and get the firewall brackets and get the remaining unpainted area on the firewall.  Thinking I will need to keep it on the rotisserie for block-sanding the roof next summer before putting the rotisserie away.
