    Clamps come off the cowl after 3 days. If you ever decide to use panel bond adhesive make sure you read the curing times as you don’t want to be putting any stress on before fully cured. Also curing time depends on temperature as well, this time of year it will take considerably longer to cure then mid summer. I’m very happy with how it has come up and it has achieved what I wanted which was a fully sealed body/plenum/cowl joint inside the plenum chamber as well as the outer.

    Great work mate, that should help keep the moisture and rust out. I like what you've done with the firewall as well, you've got it looking nice and smooth.

    Thanks mate, atm it seems like a good idea and hopefully in a couple of years it will still be holding together. Iíve had a fair bit of negative feedback on it from people saying it wonít last and itís a lazy way of doing it. Haha they really got no idea, why would you use the same technique (spot welds and a bit of seam sealer) and expect a different outcome from the factory which is more often then not a rusted out plenum. It really was a poorly designed section from factory so why not try and improve on it.

    Negative feedback about glueing it on?
    Obviously those guys havenít a clue. That shit is permanent, and like you say, it seals the whole join.

    Just so we are on the same page.... is this the Sika 2 part adhesive that mixes in the nozzle or the Urethane based adhesive that remains slightly pliable ?

    Not 2 part. It's a Polyurathane product for structural joints with high stress loads, so it doesn't set rock hard. If you click on the link you can hve a look at the data sheet if you are intrested.

    Thanks hankhef, i will have to do another update when I get time. A lot of the stuff I’m doing now doesn’t warrant posting, a lot of small finishing off jobs.

    Just finished off the driver side door/cowl/front guard gaps. They were pretty average at the start, that may have been due to the Chinese rare spares cowl. I could have attacked it a number of different ways but decided to mod the door and guard to suit the cowl.

    Added roughly 5mm to the top of the door and top side of guard and removed about the same mm at top of the guard.
