Spent the other day on the interior with a wirewheel and heavy grit sanding wheel and the grinder.

Like I said before - the driverside floor is the area that has the cancer. There are some minimal spots elsewhere but under the rear, outboard base of the driver seat is the worst. Area under the pedals came fairly clean.




I wanted to at least clean it up and get something on the floor in the driver side so after cleaning it up and scuffing it good I laid down some Krylon primer:




Then sprayed it with some flat black enamel:



This will need a more aggressive approach eventually:



from directly underneath:



For now this is how it sits in the garage:





The other day I was able to get together with a guy from my club who happens to have a template of the rear glass. Hopefully in the next few days I'll get my rear fake window put in.

I did my floor in that dupi color bedlinger .. I have good luck with that stuff... It was good for about 2 years then it faded a bit so I just hit it again and it looks really good. its like 10$ and would take you like 2-4 cans

I was originally wanting to use chassis saver on the bad sections and then Monstaline the entire floor with just a base black. I'm not so sure the chassis saver will help the spot at the back of the driver seat. I may end up cutting that floor pan out - having someone weld in new - then go from there.

Whatever you go with for bedliner, DO NOT use Herculiner. It will never come clean and it chews up any cleaning sponge/cloth/etc incredibly fast. I went with monstaliner and couldn't be happier

mar 10? Don't know what that is. I used this:




and this:



When cutting the polycarbonate I used a jigsaw and laminate (20 tpi) blade. It is nearly a must to have a large enough flat work space to put the sheet on and clamp the edges - otherwise the plastic will bounce and crack. Also - have a spray bottle with water on hand and spray the blade/plastic interface as you cut. Otherwise the polycarbonate will melt/fuse back together at the trail edge of the blade as you go. It is not a fast process cutting this stuff.

This is where I left off last night:






Just to "polish up" the look I'll tape off the outer edge of the poly and give it a finished primer&topcoat of something.

that looks like good stuff .. Mar10 is what they use for race car windows, and stuff .. its strong, lite, and pretty cheap, and you can get it tinted when you order it.

I've read this around the net and vendor display thread here. Herc gets its texture from rubber bits; Monsta gets its texture from the material itself and the roller.

I would of liked to have a tinted piece to work with - but what I got will get it done.
