Painter’s got the heads fixed real nice. I hope to have them back tomorrow.
Meanwhile, I have modified the driver’s seat to slide back 1.5” further(Omar is a tall dude) by trimming the stops on the rear of the seat sliders. Although not necessary, I welded some latch teeth to hold the seat another 1/4” rearward.

Didn’t that motor sit for a long time after it was built?John JonesModeratorNovember 8, 2021 at 7:43 amPost count: 8481ColeBModeratorNovember 8, 2021 at 8:26 amPost count: 2361
Some sort of corrosion from sitting? Crazy to see that!ColeBModeratorNovember 8, 2021 at 9:15 amPost count: 2361
I also know if the guides are put in with a loose spec that can happen. Also, The proper procedure for installing guides is with the head heated up. That way when the motor is warm you know the guides won’t move and self destructFranzModeratorNovember 8, 2021 at 10:49 amPost count: 4482
The guide was tight in the head. It wore out on the inside for some reason.
I’ve seen the guide come loose in the head before…Usually from over-heating.John JonesModeratorNovember 8, 2021 at 1:28 pmPost count: 8481

Started on Donna’s interior last week. Stripped most of it Thursday afternoon.
Cleaned it up. Installed new padding and started on the headliner Friday. Bit more on Saturday. Forgot pics…doh!
Finished the headliner, insulated and carpeted the rear parcel area, and installed the rear quarter panels today.
Franz and I also slipped fresh rubber and trim on the windows and roped them in.
Riley tore down and rebuilt the pass door with all new seals on Friday and knocked the drivers side out today.
We will build it if it comes.Riley KParticipantNovember 8, 2021 at 8:13 pmPost count: 38
Worked on Donna’s doors on Friday and most of today. Took all the old seals out and put new seals in.
Put clips in both pieces of quarter panel trim and one piece of door trim as well.

I hate doing doors.. I am glad a new guy is learning them… 😎
If the glass moves, it will suck to deal with..
