1973 Mustang – Project SportsRoof – Window Felt Install Part IV

The final part of this install of the window felt on  1973 Sports Roof was as easy as it gets.  This outside piece just snaps in – with a small adjustment.

Take a look:


The goal is to get the car sealed up and keep any more water damage from occurring to the floor pans by rain leaking into the car.

Here’s the kind of seal you want to see on the windows.



I was asked an a couple of forums about why I bothered with this task, when I’m just going to paint the car.  That’s a good question, especially when we car enthusiasts are bombarded with car shows that turn cars around in 3 days and strip a car to bare bones and send it off to the paint boot.  Well that how’s they do in T.V. land but the Average Guy isn’t going to be able to make that happen.

So yes the car is going to be painted and yes I am fairly certain that the engine is going to get rebuilt, but that’s not going to happen in a week (which I’m very dubious actually occurs in real life – T.V. or not T.V. cameras.)   But I’m going to fix we what I can now and drive it before all the big $$$ stuff has to happen.   Although the car may take a different direction, I still want it to be a drive-able project car – keeping it fun.

Thanks for reading and as always – drop me a note with your opinion.
