Cleaning the glass

Its getting closer to time to put everything back together and I’ve got a long list of things to clean. For the glass I’m using dissolve-it and windex. For the rubber, I’m washing them in soap warm water, followed by paint clean up and rubber restorer. Lots of old moss and Earl Schieb on the rubber. The opera window seals were trapping moisture causing rust, so I wanted to remove the old sealant and replace it. I believe I can get a new locking strip from Restoration Specialties.

vin plate overspray clearing

Dana cautiously cleaned off the Earl Scheib overspray from the main VIN plate. We’ll try a few more things, but it’s more readable now. This one is coming off for the bead blasters and will get more attention at that point.

There is also a specification label on the door jamb which we’ll remove with a heat gun and apply to a sticker back temporarily.
