Painted the windshield pinch welds,and rear 1/4 window trays with Epoxy.
This is the stuff they paint bridges,and offshore oil platforms with.

What's wrong with your paint?
It looks pretty good in the pictures.

The Industrial Epoxy paint was still soft this morning when I put the car out in the sun.
Full cure time is a week at 50º and 25 minutes under the trisk lights at 200º
A couple of more hours in the sun and it felt pretty hard.

This is U-POL Fiberall filler.
Basically a fiberglass epoxy filler that bridges gaps and holes.
I was mixing it with the hardener at the ratios for bondo,and it was hardballing in about 7 minutes.

I wasn't happy with the holes in the rear 1/4 window tray.
Here;
82 245 GLT Paint 31

I think they are for riveting the GL aluminum cladding trim on.
Not a good feature,nor is the fact that the tray itself is pitched back slightly to trap the water.

Half the car is single stage, the other half is BC/CC with peeling clear.

This is my favorite mud knife,nice and flexible it is actually a stainless wall paper knife.
Perfect to lay the U-POL in the pan,and pitch it back out.
Plus the fiberall is waterproof so it won't change shape or absorb water like bondo does.

A subtile pitch back out for the water,and no more holes.
2mm to zero this stuff is really nice to work with.

Here's the latest in sandpaper.
Dragonskin.
It is actually a wire screen with the abrasives bonded to it.
Fast cutting and no load, it seems to last forever.
The red 'sanding block' is actually a snippet of a bondo spreader.

On to the 89.5+ flush glass rear window washer delete.
The wash nozzle is in the center of the tailgate up top,and has the water supply hose running across the tailgate door jamb,and into the door.
Kind of a messy system in my opinion.

The 82 already has a working system on the passenger side D pillar.
I noticed the fiberall was sticking to my knives like crazy.
In fact it is designed to bond to bare metal,and fill holes up to 3/8 ".
With a backing plate larger holes can be filled.
Unlike bondo this stuff can be laid on pretty thick,and remain stable.

Welding burns through and starts rust on the inside of a panel if you can't get to it and treat it.
The hole is coarse wire wheeled and punched in slightly to get a feathered contact area on the outside.

Quite a dig to get at the connectors to remove the Drivers door without cutting any wires.

Today's riddle.
The drivers door power door lock master actuation switch.
It wraps around the lock cylinder and the shuttle switch inside it activates the locks on all the other doors.
The release lever is pointing up and a barbed tab fits through a square hole just below it.

Grinding out some more bondo on the 'D' pillar with a small diameter coarse wire wheel to keep the cutting speed down.

The 1/8" thick bondo was scaring me and I wanted to be sure the rust wasn't starting in the welds on the 1/4 replacement,
so I dug it out and glassed it up.
I got it really close with the glass,not much bondo left after sanding to get it smoothed out.
