Roof Skin Swap - Weatherstripping

Hi,

I am about to put the new skin on using the SCR/McGinn method. I know that Bill Williams did this as well.

What weatherstipping / adhesive should be used to go along the top part of the roof structure. The old material didn't seem that healthy when I took the old roof skin off.

See the picture below.

Mike Pugh uses a two part epoxy, Lord Fusor, to put it back together. So strong that the spot welds become a "maybe or maybe not".

Thanks Bill.. So he puts Lord Fusor where the driprail meets the roof frame and then tries to spotweld after using that? I was going to put some adhesive on top of the roof frame where the old foam weatherstripping was and then use spot welds along the bottom.

I do not want to speak for Mike, but I am not for sure that he spots welds at all. The epoxy may be that good.

I remember when Greg put my touring back together, he said the new epoxies make body welding almost obsolete.

easily.

probably 200+ spot welds to drill out then you are home free.

not as bad as the 130 holes I had to drill into hard steel when I drilled my brake rotor on my 72 cb350.
