It's a product called "Noico" I found on Amazon. It's reasonably priced and very easy to work with. They have a few options for quantity to buy. I bought a 36sf box, and an 18sf box, which covered all my interior including the roof, with a good amount left. I did not use it in the doors/quarters.

Warning on this: The butyl rubber is soft and will come off on your clothes (especially on your butt as you sit on it), and then transfer to other things (like brand new carpeting as you install it in your car...) angry smiley It does clean up with lacquer thinner and probably other common other solvents.

Al - thanks for the lead, however Clark's has it (Item #14 on pg 227), and I needed a few other things from them.

Glad to help.

I have a order being put together. I have to get back on the Vairs to see what I need for the next tasks I am doing on all 3 Vairs. Then check my stock and identify the missing items. The Hurricane has kept me away from them for 3 weeks now.

(Thanks Setterz54!)

This weekend I installed the windshield and the rear glass, and did the complete fitting of the carpeting.

This is FUN! Love living vicariously over the internet while others get things DONE!!
I see a young face there in the background - future 'Vair Driver?

The paint looks kinda bronze-cinnamon, trick of the camera? or is it more red than what I'm seeing?

Regardless, It looks great and I'm now thinking about a similar tarp/booth for my painting projects.

That's my daughter who provided the help installing the glass. She and her older sister love to jump in and help. The color is Kirker "Merlot" and yes, it looks more red/connamon due to the lighting. It's looks true to its color name in real sunlight.

The booth is simply a marine tarp thrown over two ropes I pulled tight end-to-end across the garage. Then I used 4x4 posts and some 2x4's, along with a 34" interior door (that I had lying around) to create the far end. The near end is basically the same with a roll down piece between the 4x4's. I use some lath (1/4" by 1 1/2") and drywall screws to seal the tarps to the posts, and the side tarps roll into the booth and simply seal against the concrete floor. The fan is a Sears "whole house" window fan I got off of craigslist. I hung 8' fluorescent lights at each end, and a pair of 4' fixtures in the middle that can slide along the ropes to focus where I need them. The real beauty of this design is I can go in with a small pressure washer and clean the thing out of all dust/dirt. It cost me about $150 to build, mostly for the tarps. I attached some pics for reference.

I blinked sometime before Thanksgiving, and it was the middle of January. I've been making a little progress, but heating my garage is a challenge in the cold weather, so getting a few hours in in the evening has not been practical. I've been getting some skiing in as well, so it's been quiet in the garage.

I screwed in the headlight bowls, and cleaned up all the internal door hardware (after spending time looking for a few things...). I've been polishing up the rear cove trim and the rocker trim. I have had a few Clark's shipments come my way: New inside review mirror and HD rear coil springs as the main items, but lots of little things. Main things left are assembling and installing the doors, all the exterior trim/chrome, and the biggest is cut/buff/polishing the paint.

Thanks for "calling me out" on the lack of progress reports... smiling smiley

Ken

Let there be doors! Of course, I chipped up the front edge of the passenger door, despite having 2 layers of masking tape on it - I have my share of chips I'll fix before the wet sanding. eye rolling smiley

The window regulators are installed as well, but not the glass.

Door assembly advice: The regulators need to go in before the vent windows, but you can get away with loosening the vent window inside screw and mounting bolts to shift it enough to squeeze the regulator in. The latch mechanism can go in any time, but connect the remote operating rod (to the inside door latch mechanism) and the rod for the inside lock button before putting it in, and then attach to the inside door latch mechanism.

Mike Stillwell sent me the lock cylinder arms I need to connect to the latch mechanisms, so they can go in next, followed by the glass. (Thanks again Mike!)

I also installed the horns.
