Just getting the other side ready for the second piece. I masked the carpet to keep spray glue off the carpet. You can also just barely see the "lift the dot" peg in this view also, between the reinforcement and side panel, just below where the panel goes down towards the floor. Later on I layed the center piece of carpet in place and also the divider panel, going to look nice!

Here is a view of the top of the rear trim panel and weatherstrip. Hint: Install the shiny curved molding BEFORE installing the inner trim panel. No need asking how I found this out. The trim panel helps hold the weatherstrip in place, so the trim panle is supposed to bulge out a little like this. I cut the stitching that holds the rubber seal to the fabric, and tucked the rubber section down right about between the top bow sockets and the 2 screws. The shiny curved molding I had polished and anodized at Badger Metal Finishing in Milwaukee www.badgermetalfinishing.com very good job, highly recommend. The weatherstrip is from Moss, happy with it, original style and not very pricey either.

This is just a shot of the paint work I did behind the grille area. Should be pretty close to original, check the next pic for where I masked off down in front of the radiator. You can see the air duct hose I came up with, looks pretty close to the original stuff, a little thicker material and holy crap I think a dump truck would have to run the stuff over to collapse it.

Here you can see down in the well in front of the grille. very bottom is taped off and the same color as the rest of the body, as is the center support bar.
