That foam isn't factory, is it.
No, somebody got a can of something and squirted it - either thinking it would insulate or reduce a rattle. Whatever they were trying to "improve" they didn't.
It's 'factory' in most of the vehicles built today.
Help hold them togather
Sound deadening, and strength, actually.
Yep,took most of the day prep,rust coverter coating.Now to find new roof skin.Everyone have safe 4th July holiday!God bless America!

Did you get the windshield out without breaking it? Or did i miss that part?
Yes Jim,windshield removed intack.(post 66).When I removed surround trim,windshield lifted off.Lucky me,saved some ranchero$$$!107 temp that day may have something to do with ease.

i like the wasp nest next to the VIN tag.
POR might work for you instead of the Rustoleum spray cans. just a tip.
great work so far.
I had my windshield changed a while back as it cracked for no apparent reason! ...The black sticky stuff, was sure soft alright, but as he was cutting it out it kept sticking back together on itself! ...wouldn't want to have to remove it now though, he used a modern bond glue, so I think it's stuck in there pretty good now!
AFTER ALL THE WORK YOU HAVE DONE, I WOULD SUGGEST POR TO PROTECT IT FROM ANY RUST IN THE FUTURE--ANDY
cool to find so quickly
Sounds like the grand prize at a swap meet. Nice score.
Sprayed 4 cans of wasp freeze nose to tail yesterday.Removed glass and trim without getting nailed.Neighbors sheltered in place.Taking her top off tomorrow..Will have pics!
Got lucky,Owner was so glad to get rid of POS he delivered it!Will be at the foot of the crusher this time next week.Ill save what I can.Need another bench seat?
Yes,was good find Sean/TestDummy(STD???)Mags,gum ball machines make deal a push.They will do well at swap meets.If motor is good will be a plus.
