What a pain in the a## job.
« on: February 11, 2011, 05:32:12 PM »

I'm getting my 77 New Yorker ready for paint. I'm also gonna have the vinyl top done so I figured I'd take the moulding off the rear of the vinyl. What a pain. It is held on with nuts so I had to take out the back seat, rear trim panels, rear window trim and the back of the headliner. Even after all that I still couldn't get to the nuts in the center of the roof because the sunroof housing is in the way. I'm NOT taking the sunroof out so I was able to pry the trim off without damaging it. I'm gonna put it back on with barrel clips or some other type of push in fasteners. One very interesting discovery was when I got it apart I found that the opera window is actually a regular 2dr hardtop window covered by a panel to give the opers window appearance. There are even complete working regulators in there. they go up and down. I'm wondering if they're all like that or is it just because of the sunroof conversion?

They get rain, but the real saving grace and rust prevention is the very low humidity. It is so dry out there, Chapstick needs a moisturizer .dana442011-02-12 12:30:40

Those opera windows are kind of like the 72/73 inperial rear windows.  They used a new yorker body and put a fiberglass shrouud around the rear window.

Steve, just have a tube of Chapstick in your pocket at the border, and if you stop sweating for more than five minutes, drink something. Oh, and metal parts in the shade will burn your hands, too, so make sure you have some leather gloves (think I'm kidding?????).

Just like Viet Nam in the summer.
 
And I always carry several pairs of insulated sheepskins.  I've been out to Masa many times.  You learn quick!
 
I thought that was a Jar Heads job to adapt.  LOL

Of course, and learning from other people's experiences is another one.

Didn't the heat down there basically bake the interior and paint on some cars? Instead of new metal you need now interiors?
