I'm sure you are aware of this stuff...I even use it to keep house wrap anchored down while siding .

Yes, Ed I used it several times.  A can here cost $10 whereas a gallon of Weldwood cost $42.  Hard to compare the two because the Weldwood requires a spray gun and compressor but the spray is a nice web pattern that sort of sits on top of whatever you are gluing.  The Weldwood will cover far more area than 4 cans of "off the shelf" spray BUT the cleanup is much easier.  With the Weldwood there is no such thing as repositioning, once placed you would most likely rip something getting them apart again.  Lots of trade-offs and for a small job or two I would go for the cans.  Cans can be stored longer too.

Well, tried the glue in a gravity feed gun (cheapo HF) and it works just fine.  This enabled me to finish the door panel and kick panel.  This leaves the seats and sun visors to do.  Decided to opt for no cloth on the visors because they would be easier to clean if all vinyl.  Again, all new to me so I've been testing the different methods of covering the visor.  Tried covering the visor with thin cardboard but the ribs in the cardboard will show thru.  Got some HEAVY poster board and it will work BUT the sewing machine does not like two layers of cardboard and 4 layers of vinyl.  Sandpapered the edge of the cardboard a bit and the machine hummed right through it.  Next up is how to mount the mirrors.  Note to self...why?  Note the difference in kick panels.  Decided to go with all vinyl next to e-brake pedal for ease of cleaning.  Also looking for an embroidery show to put a design on the visors.

You are really doing a nice job, it looks great!
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn

Trunk is finished.  Box to the right covers the battery and suitcase is for spare parts, wiring diagrams, cleaners, etc.  Only thing left is the seats.  Originally ordered 10 yards of vinyl and it's all gone so I have more on order to start the seats.  Bunch of small things to do such as build some sort of glove box.  Won't be very deep due to the A/C lines but a place to keep the necessary paper for the car.

Little off topic but relevant to doing the interior.  Sat in one of the patio chairs and it ripped.  Same with two others.  Time to buy new patio chairs and table.  Wait,. why don't I just replace the fabric.  Did research and these are "sling chairs".  Fabric is tightly woven with a PVC coat.  Got 3 yards and some cord to go into the side slots.  Sewed everything up and put the chairs together over the weekend.   Now if I can only do this with the seats in the '39.  Started to take the pass. seat apart and cut each panel out for a pattern.  Hope it works out.

Covered the plastic seat parts with vinyl.  Looks lots better than the scratched up paint.  All seat panels are made, just need to sew them together BUT the temp is 110 and the sun shines right into the garage in the afternoon.  I'll just wait.

Got the passenger seat done, ready to install.  Learned a few things about sequence of sewing the panels together.  Lets recap the entire interior cost.  Used Consew 226 $650.  Servo motor for same $100.  Cloth, foam, vinyl, carpet and thread $700.  Time...holly smokes!  Therapy...TBT.  Satisfaction of doing it myself: priceless.  Several years ago I did get a quote on a redo of the interior at $4000.  I do not know what this would have looked like when done, colors, theme etc. 

For those thinking of taking on a project like this yourself, do it!  Most of the sewing could be done on a quality home machine but I highly recommend a walking foot machine.  There are portable walking foot machines such as Rex for as low as $300 and will get the job done.  In my opinion the walking foot machine is much easier to sew on than your home machine.  Hardest is the seats which will require a walking foot machine but nothing else does.  Door panels can be done with a regular machine so you could farm out the seats.  Many videos on line. 

Think this is the end of this thread.
