I'm going to start on the dew wipes tomorrow morning. Dad's actually gonna pull his Daytona out of the garage so I can work on the mark, cause it's gonna rain... I cleared off the work bench so I can use Mom's laptop to check the PDF File as I go...

I hope to god that it doesn't really take 2 days (per door???) to do, and is there any possible steps that I can skip, seeing as the PDF file was written for an LSC, not a BB.

Edit: I just read the entire article with James. Holy crap!! This job is WAY too big to do. I don't have the time or patience to do it, let alone the tools. It won't get done before Carlisle, Maybe if James has a free weekend during the summer, but not likely.

I'll just focus on something else, like the Horns (in another thread), or touching up the paint job.
Cheers

Yesterday I stole Bryan and took a look at this new dew wipe solution and feel that it is inferior to the current JC Whitney set up.

I will post pictures after I put out a couple more fires.

I remain...

Save for moving bicycle helmets off of the desk, this is actually how I found things...even though to me it looks somewhat staged. A buddy of mine in college free-handed the emblem on the computer case. It is an older computer, but works perfect for garage duty!

I obtained a window molding that was in good shape from the salvage yard and ordered a pair of LN103 outer weather strips. The company said that I had to drill holes for the stapes. This is the way they turned out.
.
I have not installed them on the car yet. Would like to see your pictures. If the pictures do not show up here go to my gallery as I have not learned how to post them yet on the forum.

Art;
Thanks. How did you do that. I kept getting a message saying the file was too large. Is there some instructions some where for up loading pictures. Hope to meet all on June 6th.

In reference to my window wipes. I had to find a good piece of molding and drill the holes for the staples because there is no tool that will do this. Then insert the staples by hand and bend with pliers. And now for the rest of the story…..
When I installed these on the car with great effort, I discovered that they did not fit. The middle was bulging out and did not fit flush to the window. I called the company
RE -POPS and complained. The problem is on the LN103s there is a 2 inch felt strip in the middle that is about ½ inch thick that stops the wipe from fitting. On our cars this is only about 1/8 inch. They told me to remove it. So I removed the wipes and drilled this out and reinstalled them on the car. The fit was much better, I would recommend these.

Ah, so thats the secret. I just installed these today, and for the life of me I could not get the passenger side one to sit right. The driver's side practically fell into place, and looks perfect with no meddling. I'll try removing that felt "bump" tomorrow and see if it fixes it.

Hello-

I don't plan to sand and polish the trim, just replace the felt...Has anyone used these replacements, will they require cutting and the complex install?

I decided to give it a shot today and ordered the KIT with both inners and outers it clears both inside and outside of the windows. But, just as importantly to me is the fact that they come with the CLIPS ALREADY ATTACHED so we should be able to forget about drilling holes and installing rivets. They were $154 delivered to MICH in 2or 3 days. That is from STEELE RUBBER CORP. The lady answering the phone had quick answers to any of my questions and gave me a good feeling about their products. Will let you know when I receive it and get putting it on. On second thought , I think since my mark vii has to go into the body shop on the second of Nov to fix a 'bubbly up' near the right front mirror, I just may ask him to add this procedure as well and tell me how hard or easy it was and whether or not he liked the product. LATER.....BUD :)

Did you ever get those installed? I'd really like to replace my originals, they're practically a saw blade at this point, but would like to hear some feedback first.

Thanks!

You may want to check over on Lincolnsonline for an answer also. I believe a mambe named Skarhed used the RubberSteele product also. It's been awhile, but I believe so. From what I remember he had good results.

Also Sir Tonk, probably not the best way to get an answer, but awhile back I believe I saw your car in the Houston area. I left a meesage on it for you, but never got a response. If you dont mind chatting some time, I'd like to hear from you? reply here or send a pm if possible.

Yeah, that was me. I've still got the note in the center console, I think. Sorry I never got back, It's been rough at work and I haven't been keeping up with much else (especially car stuff, which drives me crazy). I work there at the museum.
