Did you really want to have everybody who reads this watch you work, stand around and kibitz? Maybe most of this forum can be called "virtual kibitzing".
I think Dave's idea of partially snugging the pop rivets like the cylinder head, going around until they pop, is brilliant!
Married & have kids so I'm used to it. Actually it is getting to the point that when I mutter "where did I set that phillips screwdriver" having someone answer helps speed things up compared to me wandering in circles looking for it
Yep idea worked really well. Plus (big plus to my mind) I could then see where the gap between window and shell indicated the butyl was bunching up and not fully compressed. That is where I would break out the C clamp before doing the final tighten.
Can FINALLY proceed with inside work secure from the rain. Man it has been a job. The rare but not unheard of scamp
belly band leak, door hinge bolt leak, old taillight bolt leaks
and window leaks
Have all the wood rails ready for seats and couch to go back in. Going to do some work on those first. Planning to glass a piece of luan wood to spots I want to mount an outlet to provide some additional backing and strength. One on the front couch (inverter & 12 volt) one on the front edge of the street side dining seat.
Meanwhile I'll primer and paint
the floor in preparation for allure flooring while I do that stuff in the garage.
