    that's generally a good idea for rust prevention in the sills, along with additional holes on the bottom to let water out again. I've seen it rather often. Fortunately, being a Montecarlo, my car never had the trim.

    The clips and the holes. Not the holes for the trim btw.

    looks like Tec7 to me.
    There exists a remover for it ; but be carefull for your underlying paint.
    I would protect the surroundings with 2 layers of tape and try to cut of the most of it tangential with a sharp knife.
    The rest of it with a plastic or wooden scraper.

    As a "former previous owner" ( aren't we all at some point, with some car ?), I admit using similar things for the trim : during the restoration you see the damage and rust coming from the surroundings of the trim and you want to prevent it. ( some presidents might talk about 'Hell holes', probably referring to those trim holes )
    And double sided tape ... I haven't found good quality yet.

    grten, Geert.

    Sikaflex is good to attach trim particularly the front and rear...

    Lol... I haven't ever heard of Tec7 but I will do a little research and see if I can locate some of the remover nearby. I had planned to do as you say and cut away as much as possible if heating it does not allow it to be scraped off.

    Interestingly enough we use Sikaflex in a few places on the circuit breakers that we build.. I can probably just snag a tube from here.

    if you want a tape try this. make darn sure you have it lined up before letting it stick cause you won't be able to adjust it without re-taping. it's oem approved by major auto manufacturers for light trim adhesion.

    Sorry for the off topic...
    But this picture reminds me that I still cannot remove the boot locker. It is still stuck between the rear panel, and the retaining piece of metal we see in the picture.
    What's the trick to get it away from there? Do I have to open / close the locker, or slide it in a special way?
    thanks a lot!

    I can't 100% remember how I got mine out, other than it involved a lot of juggling, patience and swearing. Turning the barrel to a certain position helped, but I don't remember there being anything clever about removing it in the end. Getting it back it was the same pain, but again it just trying various combinations seemed to get there in the end. Good luck!

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Lots of progress this weekend. I said I'd get primer on but I decided to wait until I let my paint guy take a look at what I've done.

    I took Friday off work to work on the car and got both arches as good as I can before primer. I applied some finishing glaze and then sanded with 180 and 320. Also did the same with the drivers side sill. Regarding the Tec7.... heat did not affect it all and none of the chemicals I had worked so I said f**k it and cut it off with a razer and then just sanded the remaining film off. I guess this means I may end up blending on the door but that's up to the guy painting it.







    Saturday I could not work on the car because I had engagement photos to take. I didn't want to get dirty beforehand so I spent the day with my fiancé which was nice. With all the work on my car lately I've had less time with her. She wants me to get the car ready for the upcoming show though...

    Sunday my uncle and grandfather came down to finish tweaking the hood. Last they worked on it, we suspected that the hinges themselves had moved when the hood flew up. This caused interference between the cowl and the hood making it impossible to open and close the hood. He has a massive slide hammer and we used that to pull the hinges back forward. We also had to hammer them down a bit at a time. After a couple hours of adjusting, we got the hinges exactly where they needed to be and now the hood opens as it did before it flew back on me. After that we spent a while tweaking the shape and getting it to fit the body lines. Then my uncle applied filler and worked with it for some time. I'm extremely happy with the outcome to say the least. I never imagined this hood would ever look this good again.



    He worked the filler up to 80 grit and had to leave (he works night shift so needed to get some sleep). I sanded with 180, added glaze and sanded with 180 again and called it a day.



    The plan is to let the guy painting it have a look and then finish any final sanding during the week this upcoming week and have him spray color as soon as he can. Feeling pretty good with where I am now.
