when is the right time of year to pick new ripe doors?

Usually in the fall before winter comes through! The heavy salt pesticide required for winter ruins the crop.

Tomorrow is time for color. I had to respray primer in a few places where I sanded through.

Paint it the same color. I could not fit it inside the garage at the same time.

O-Gauge Steamer over on NAXJA let everyone know that Sprintex is wholesaling the remaining prototype XJ kits. I ordered one and it is on the way. This means I can install a professional setup and keep air conditioning.

Safelite came to install a new windshield today. I ended going with the rubber trim due to the condition of the chrome trim.

This is the last of the paint. I can put all the tools away and forget about it! This paint coverage is better than factory with 100% color everywhere an owner would normally look. Instead of primer still visible in some spots like around the fuel filler door.











Lets ignore the blob of filler under the second E. After spending six hours of this tail gate, with it being the best of two, it was time to just paint it.

I tried! That old seal even gave Safelite trouble. The suction cups on their wire cutting rig cracked the glass in several other places from the pressure being applied. The paint underneath was pristine and needed no touch ups.

Oh lol, yeah there not fun at all. Luckily i got help with mine from a autobody guy. He has the phumatic tool to cut out the urathane. I forgot that safelite wont come just to remove. Thats good there was no rust though, mine had a small amount of surface rust that was starting to scale a bit. Nothing i couldn't grind out/sandblast though.
