I've just about finished the winter list for upgrades on my '63 Falcon gasser. Just replaced the rear bumper with a nice used one I found on local CL. Also built new shifter handle for the ST10 4 speed. Ladder bars all reworked, and new leaf springs installed in the rear.
The last thing on the list is body work, and I guess I can't put that off any longer. Still need to do the carpet, but that has to wait until after body work, or it will end up a mess from sanding dust.
I had the same problems with my Camaro also Chris. Just make it all line up by readjusting, and then give it time. I haven't heard of anyone who's weatherstripping fit well when it was new. I really had more trouble with window portion than I had with doors.
the gmc is my new to you daily driver. had a 2011 toyota tacoma trd off road and it was the most worthless vehicle i have ever owned. the only thing it did right was selling for enough money to buy the 69 gmc and get a jump on the parts it needed. old ranchers truck and EVERYTHING was just rigged together. lol the motor leaks out of every seal it has!!! basically now just need to redo the wiring nightmare and do an engine swap with new exhaust and the grill chrome trim on the passenger side is missing...anyone have one i would be happy to take it off their hands? just the piece that bolts thru the front of the fender around the grill. front bumper itself was pretty mangled from being pulled on so that needs replaced to but i think i have one of them lined up..
same thing happened when i put the seals in on my camaro..i moved the door stricker in a little further, doors a little tighter and harder to close but lined up perfect to the quarter panel
New problem...door weather stripping
no weather stripping doors fit great and flush with quarters
install weather stripping (soft seal) doors stick out from quarters by a 1/4 inch when shut, kind of like looks like when door is ajar.
any ideas this is the second set of weather stripping I'm out of ideas.
The Camaro looks great! The GMC looks like a solid start too! I'm partial to them, as my daily driver is a '69 Suburban.
my new project and the progress so far.. harder to work on when you need to drive em too!
some of the pics of my 8 year project to a close. thanks for all the help everyone...
