Welcome Jerry.

Sorry to hear about you Dad.

Keep us up to date on finishing the car and registration.  My insurance company and Texas registration was OK with the HMxxxx VIN.

I also used super glue to roll the edges so they wouldn't come loose.  Used tongue depressors and a variety of clamps to secure the edges as shown in the attached picture.  I have a bunch of the red clamps so would do a good bit of the edge at a time.  Trimmed the vinyl after the glue had set.

I used the 3M High Strength 90.  Make sure and spray both the dash and the vinyl.  Let the adhesive dry both sides before joining the two.  If you don't let it dry, it will leave a gooey film that will eventually let the vinyl separate from the dash.  I found out the hard way.  Had to remove the dash/gauges and recover with new vinyl.  And remove the gooey mess off the dash.

I used a pastry roller to roll out any bubbles or wrinkles.  Worked real well.

You won't be disappointed with Hurricane.  Great bunch of guys.  They support their product 100% and you will find plenty of Hurricane owners that are willing to help with any questions or issues with the build of your car.

Here's some pix of the panels and how they are installed plus the brackets I made to fasten the bottom of the panels to the frame.

General Questions / Re: Body weight
« on: June 18, 2018, 09:01:19 am »
Not sure of the exact weight but I always used 4 bodies (one at each fender well) to remove/replace the body.  Probably in the 200 lb range so each one had maybe 50 lbs.  A little beer and BBQ and those guys could always lift a lot more.  Be sure and put the 2x4 brace from the dash cowl to the rear cowl so the body doesn't flex and crack.

I built my body buck exactly to Paul's plans and the body fit perfectly.  The fender contours fit the plywood end pieces perfectly.  Paul did some research to modify a different manufacturer's body buck to fit the Hurricanes.  Worked perfectly for me to be able to store the body over the chassis and roll it out of the way when I was working on the chassis.

It was a monumental day when I was able to disassemble the body buck and do away with it (repurpose the wood).
