That stinks, seems like a reply I could expect from yards down here, but I would have thought they'd be a bit more friendly up that way. I think www.row52.com has a way for you to send an electronic request for the part via the website, but I think you have to register for an account on row52 first. Would Sadie's owner be wiling to duck in and take a look?

Ha... I had already called Bill and asked him to stop in Friday on his day off.
Then called George at Montana Overland and he found one. 55 bucks and it is on the way. They have just about everything there. I also heard some interesting stuff on Henry Kaiser. How he cheapened the jeeps and did not do them any favors. Interesting chat...

Problem $olved....

A good day here today. Got the seats in with a neighbors help. Did some final rubber casting for the tailgate guide pins. And a few other unmentionables.
I swear it took me an hour and a half to land the transfer case boots and trim ring. That I am glad to be done with.

Casting the guide pins with flexane 94. The 94 is the hardest while there are softer compounds available. I think this is conveyer belt repair compound?

My mold needed work still. But they are turning out OK. I cast the rubber right on to the metal bracket. I pretty much ruined the other half of the mold. So this is perfect to do it this way. I carefully painted release agent around the outside of the mold. The rubber comes right off leaving me a clean job of it.



The flexane and part numbers. The ratio is sensitive as I had to redo one side three times. It came out gummy.



The release agent. It works very well.



The finished casting compared to a good but dirty original.



While I have no air bubbles cast into the work, you can make a vacuum chamber that will remove all air bubbles in a more complex part. I intend to make a small vacuum chamber this winter as I brought home a vacuum pump from my dads when I cleaned his place after he passed. So that should be interesting later.

The Porsche seat belt guides worked like a charm. I carefully measured, marked and cut the openings. Then had to sew up the old slots that were in the wrong place from SMS auto fabrics (Canby Oregon) my absolute favorite company.



The seats in and the belt areas. It was the best I could do.... The thread is black. It is just a reflection in the flash.



Seats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And I was able to make the black plastic surround work with the carpet.





Now I can mount the mirrors. Door seals this next week and then the last of the unsolved issues. The tailgate window....

Glad to finally be at this point..

The wife and I kept going to look at it. It really does feel like a milestone. And it is funny what the pinstriping does to the camera. It's weird. It pretty much wigs out the lens...
