Damn....had to go back and paint all the hardware under the rear deck lid, as well as the heavy hinges that the deck lid is mounted to.

Still turned out good, I just wish I would have known this before I painted the underside last Saturday.

Hi Pat, the gloss on that paint looks deep enough to swim in - will you be "cutting" it back or is that done and dusted ? - Cheers GV

I still need to cut and buff it, but that being said, it's definitely still going to maintain the same gloss.

Looks soooo nice Pat! What adhesive did you use to attach the rubber weatherstrip around your deck lid?

Frankie, so what's correct in terms of carriage frame primer/paint? I see some folks using what appears to be flat black paint or black primer while others use the green chromate during restoration?

I used the 3M (black) weatherstrip adhesive. To assist with attempting to keep it clean, I ran a piece of tape all the way around the edge, just keeping about 3/8" revealed for the adhesive. Placed the product on both surfaces, let it set up and then put them together. Worked very good. Then just peeled off the tape. Definitely helped keeping the exposed surfaces clean and clear of excess product.

I was just thrilled that the gaps, and the level surfaces remained in place!

Yes that is great that everything stayed put! Thx for the info on the technique and adhesive Pat. I need to redo my hood and deck weather strips.
