What are you using for a sealant around the top trim over the doors? I know we talked about a few.

Thanks for the compliments.

My current line up of products is pretty long, I'll get some pictures later on today.

I got 2 more jack stands so the front of the car will be going up in the air later today, and who knows how much I will yank at that point.

The weather stripping and the plastic strip above the doors is all 3M super weatherstrip adhesive. I ran out of black on the door seals so I had to resort to the yellow for the top strip. A little more clean up and you wont be able to tell what color I used. Picking up 3 tubes of black later today for the passenger side, and to have some on hand.

its840: just let me know. W/e works.

update w/o pictures. I will put them up tomorrow when I actually finish something.

Got the front end up, wheels off, and took the passenger side rocker off...NO rust!!! woohoo. So that made me happy.

So I decided that it was time to paint all the primer I painted on yesterday. So I did that.

I didn;t feel like working with more door trim so I drained the oil and took the pan off so I can replace the gasket. Was NOT supprised to find coolant all in there. (LIM gaskets) So I get to play with the pan more tomorrow. Clean it really good, clean all the gasket surfaces, and bolt it back up.

After I got the oil pan off, I took off all the passenger side door seals and trim and such and started cleaning the frame.

I should finish those up tomorrow.

You go Rob. I hope at the next NEBF to see your wheels.

On the subject of weather sealing, One thing that intrigued me was replacing the sealing around the windows. I noticed even on some of the other older bonnevilles that you can hear that the seals are starting to go there.

How would one approache replacing that stuff?

You'd need to get different or new seals.

I'm working on getting the "reccomended products", having a way to get to the store is always helpful...

Mortehl: I'm not sure about those window seals, but I hope to have my car out there for atleast one of the NEBF'* next year.

I like the part where the plan is fluid.

Originally it was fix the brakes and change the intake gaskets, plus a billion other items.

To date it'* fix body rust and change somethings.

LOL, so true.

My parents said they would get the brakes fixed. Although for some reason i dont quite get, my dad wants me to fix them so its drivable, so they can drive it in to get them fixed. I still dont understand that.

I could still do all the intake gaskets if I wanted to.
