Planned to attend Amelia Island Concours and Carl suggested (ok he ordered me ) to trailer J.P. to finish & program the Infinity Box system. Great time visiting with Carl, his lovely daughter, Dad and step Mom in from Sweden. Bonus: Also met up with Lou, Droo, Trey, and his wife at the Werks Reunion on Fri. Great event T

T looking good.

make sure you put drip panels into those door cutouts,
then cover the whole door with shower curtain clear.

Bedbathandbeyond has good quality clear curtains one will do both doors.

NOTE just covering the whole panel with one sheet will not be good for your lower door panels,
as the water will run to the bottom of the plastic,
and then wick into your door panel then it will rot and crumble.

Drip panels should fall about 1 to 2 inches below the lower edge of all openings.

Also remove the rear door lamp housing and clean off the corrosion at the pins,and bulb

then put some RTV on the back of the boot/wire so water wont run down the wire and fill the boot.

Put lubricating oil on the door latch mechanism to reduce tendency for the handle to fail.

Lubricate the window arm pivot the window will work faster,
a long thin drip tube works 12 inch,
to drip the oil down from the top with the window down and the flash lamp.

Last tighten all the door hardware before installing the door panel ,
also the tighten the handle and armrest pivot screws

Thank you Stan, I'm sure Carl will take notice of your helpful advice and apply as nesseccary. I have full faith in Carl judging by the work already performed (example of Carls's handiwork below) on his GT project and among many reasons it's now in his hands. A few pics of Carl's project below showing the detail of his efforts...much more here: [url]https://rennlist.com/forums/928-forum/607482-empty-shell-to-finished-car-38.html

Hey Mrmerlin do you have a picture anywhere of the Drip sheets attached to the door ?
I'm getting ready to take apart mine to dye Black and install Speakers and would like to tidy everything up while i'm in there.
I'm going to add soundproofing also. Thx !

There are pics somewhere on here. I searched various combinations of "door", "vapor barrier" "drip panel" and "shower curtain" without any luck.

But, even without pics, it's pretty simple.

The vapor barrier is simply a sheet of plastic that covers the entire interior of the door. It seals off the inside of the door (where the window motor is) from the door card.
The drip panels are smaller pieces that go into the openings in the door. They are cut a bit wider and 2 or 3 inches longer than the opening. They get glued to the "outside" of the door at the top of the hole ("outside" meaning the side that the door card goes onto). Then they simply get tucked into the hole (into the area where the window motor is). They catch anything that drips into the door, say from the window gap, and keep it away from the door card.

The drip panels go on first, then the vapor barrier.

Stan suggests Weldwood contact cement. I used 3M 77 spray on and it worked ok.
