Re: Working Man's Burbon

Another day another delema. I noticed the driver's side seam where the roof meets the A pillar is misaligned. It could have been like this since new. It sure seems like one more place for water to get in around the windshield seal, so somethings got to change. After staring at it awhile I got my favorite hammer and went to town. First I made a template of the other side, flipped it and compared how far off it was and proceeded to beat it into submission. I held a body working dolly on the offending area and hit it with a 3 lb hammer. Thirty minutes later I was happier. Not that it was now perfect but much better than before. The last photo is shows the end result. You may not be able to tell the difference from the pictures. It certainly looked as if the pieces were never clamped down correctly during assembly. But after this many years who knows. I haven't found any evidence the the WMB was ever wrecked, but the upper gate is black under the original green color.
