Looks like a gangster car, Great shot man!!
Sure appreciate you showing this build, you're going in the right direction, welcome to HAMB.
Glad you enjoyed it
Getting ready for cold days
The car looks great!!! Love the color. She has a very sinister vibe .
Thanks I can't wait to get the front seats covered
Looks good Brad! How are you sticking the foil stuff to the roof? I used 3M 77 or something in the sedan delivery and the foil came down in the heat.
I used 3M super 77 I hope it holds
The stuff you need is DAP Weldwood Landau Top and Trim Contact Adhesive. A gallon can will go a good ways, get a cheap HVLP gun and spray it. Hit google and give it a look.
Posted using the Full Custom H.A.M.B. App!
The stuff I used is a 3M product that comes in a spray, suggested by the insulation vendor here on HAMB (not the fancy name brand stuff, I think he's listed as an Alliance vendor. When I get home from here at my sister's place here in VA, I'll take a looksee at the label.
I only have it on firewall inside so far, but it hasn't loosened at all.
It's listed as automotive insulation on Alliance list and when you clk on the link it comes up E-Z Kool insulation. He recommends 3M gen. trim adhesive and I'm fairly certain that's what I used, but I'll look when I get home. His literature says part # o8o88. You spray on and put in place before it sets up so you can slide into place and smooth out before it grabs solid.
Ok DOM that looks different than what I used - this is the 08088
This stuff was ok until the summer sun did its thing.
Didn't see the stuff Tim mentioned on Amazon though.
I'm pretty sure that what you showed as on Amazon as 08088 is what Lobocrud suggests.
I got it @ Advance, and right beside it on the shelf was another 3M spray glue product with a number in the name, prolly what you show as what you used. IIRC, the stuff looks like what we always called Canary Shit, in a squeeze tube but 3M called it trim adhesive.
Back @ home now, will take a look @ shop tomorrow, and get back here.
Just for Carl and Josh
What are you showing to Carl and Josh?
They don't HAMB so you better TXT them ......
They did not like the blue fan so I painted it black
Good looking pie crust slicks Brad. Where did you get those and what type, size, etc. are they?
Those where Tonys off of the A Josh had them i think Russ has them now looked good from the side but not from the front or back
Time to cover the front seats Deb is hooking me up here are a few pics
Deb is rocking it man, Lots of work but she can get it done. So who is next in line?
My Helmet Pad is next!!
That is an interesting fabric for sure!!!
I finally got to see this car in person.
Which is very cool after reading and following along to the build thread here.
It is a very sweet ride.
