89 spotwelds later, my outer roof skin is off. Hopefully this week the new skin will be glued on.

Dupli-Color's version of Por-15. It was the best I could find without having to order it. I figured I'm pretty safe with it being inside the roof.
Also figured out how to hold the new phone to get the pictures right! It's a right handed world!

It's the things one would never think of that really make the difference. I'm looking for a good left-handed digital caliper. It's really annoying to have to flip a normal one over to read the measurement.

I've been told that before, but I rarely had to use hand-me-down sports equipment growing up!

How true, I forgot about that little tidbit.

Re: Roostre's 1967 C20

Haha, OK, back to the truck, temporarily.

I was waiting for the oil to drain out of my daily driver, so I figured I would work on my truck for a while. I'm still waiting on the adhesive to show up so I can stick the roof skin back on, so I decided to tackle more of the right fender. After I replaced the front cup, I found a suspicious amount of bondo behind the wheel well. It looks like it was hit on the body line. Someone pulled it back out and carved the body line out of bondo. I swear a previous owner of this thing must be the Michelangelo of bondo, there's so much on this truck and intricate carvings. It would be impressive if it wasn't coming loose and rusting the metal under it. So I lined up the patch panel and cut off the skin. I found a small rust hole in the inner structure, so I cut that out and welded in a piece of the old outer roof skin. Then, since the can was sitting there, I painted the inner part of the structure with the Dupli-Color rust inhibitor.
Enough typing, on to the pictures!

I would be interested in seeing your process for gluing the outer roof skin back on. My outer roof skin has hail damage on it, so I'm thinking of replacing it at some point.

Re: Roostre's 1967 C20

Can you weld on the Rust inhibiter that you used?

Stay tuned. I did an initial fit up of my new roof skin last night. Like most aftermarket panels, it doesn't fit as well as the OEM, but I think I can get it to fit well enough for my purposes.

I don't know. I plan on cleaning down to bare metal anywhere that I need to weld. The 3M adhesive I plan to use says that it needs to bond bare metal, so that will need to be cleaned up also.
