Thanks David, I have just got a box of that 3M Black strip caulk, I did read your post on the roof rails.

The caulking that seems to be on the roof rails is light grey / white (like the caulking you show in the picture above from MD Products)

Question, Should I also be looking to get the white caulking too, or just use the 3M black caulking through the whole job?

That MD Products caulking available at Home Depot for just $5.49

I just looked on Amazon UK, they are selling it for £48.21 + £8.66 delivery! Total £57.87 So in US Dollars that's $72.35 Bargin!

Just needs stripping and repolishing now,  But that's another piece on the car saved.

Interior Instrument lense
Now this job has taken hours!  There is a shadow in the clear plastic I can't shift, but overall this is much better.
Before....... they were Very Yellow and scratched

Wet & and Dry paper sanded back both sides to remove deep scratches.

Then used a Dremel with a small buffing wheel and Meguiars Plastix polish.

This job really does take hours, I still have to polish the small centre lense but you can see the progress. Smile

Nice work!  This is coming right along! thumb

The trick with the 3M Panel Adhesive for the 'dog dish air hat' is genius.  I 'glued on' my passenger side quarter panel skin with the stuff, and it was awesome.  You might even save yourself some welding and go that route with the floor pans and cowl repair as well.

The instrument cluster 'glass' turned out awesome as well.   thumb

Thanks, 
I consider the floor pans to be structural, particularly where they were spot welded to the rocker and chassis rails, so there is no way I will cut corners on that!

Nothing wrong with that.  thumb

You'd be surprised how strong the 3M Panel Adhesive joints are, though.  One test video I saw online had the metal ripping before the joint would give up.  Just a new option to consider.  Keep it coming - you're doing awesome work!
