What's the long term issues with the point from steel to fiberglass? Or are there any. Looks good, I am always in envy of your skill and attention to detail.

none .. as long as it is done correctly ! it's better then a weld !!

We recommend the 3M epoxy for install , and they guarentee the bond for life , so if there is any delamination , it is warrentable .

since 2002 when we switched to 3M , we have only had 2 issues with delamanation with the 3M product . Warreny was no problem .

bonding strips made and installed





These are simply just a flat piece of fiberglass , cut to fit . they are flexable , and easy to install . Epoxied into place , with the epoxy filling all the "air gaps" the panel is ready to install . (just have to fix some rust first)

so before attaching the panel , its easiest to drill and install the nutcerts for the fuel filler pocket



and with that , time to epoxy the panels on





also , David wanted a new rear bumper
so we ordered in the TG unit .. got it all prepped and painted today

clamps off today , and wanted to check fit of the gate before we do the new gate panel ..
body lines were great , maybe little tight .. but there is some room to sand the edges if needed , but we dont need to





so now time to tear down the gate



just in time .. dealing with minimal rust ...

all cleaned up and some POR 15 for some longevity .. curing over the weekend , should be ready to epoxy on Monday


skin all prepped and ready to install



also got the fuel assy back together
