Yessir, chaseincats, I think I'm going to first try a follow-up lithium grease bomb, full coverage, no mercy,since it had "partially" worked so well. And mjmogab, the dremel is tempting too, if we...

Well I had already tried the lithium grease and it cured it for a few closures and now the gunshot's back. But thanks, chaseincats, it's still the best fix result, and I thought it had permanently...

Simplest way to take off the door??

It's the spring-loaded driver's side hinge I'm after. The one that sounds like a gunshot when I close the door. Whether I rebuild or switch it out, at this point I think it's gotta come out. I've...

Correct carpet kit fastening?

I'm wondering how the carpet fasteners on the seat rail are supposed to be used, whether for the underneath section or through the top front section overlay. Alas, I learned too late not to discard...

I'm mostly there, at least for the floor. I'm just trying to remove left over bumps of insulation residue. Will your insulation go all the way up the sides to the door sill like the carpet does? ...

Much appreciated. Say, were your floors completely sanded to bare metal before painting, no traces of oxidation? Or is it ok to have some discoloration/surface oxidation even after some sanding? ...

The dry ice works, I'm a believer. These pics are after using 20 lbs of it in 2 separate applications and mixed with alcohol. Followed by some scraping/chiseling. Still have a lot of cleanup...

So the dual method is best. I'll try the dry ice then I'll follow up with chiseler and wheels. You're right, I guess the only way to be sure and complete is to get it all off. Besides, I'm...

I have to wonder if it's necessary to go "all the way" with the removal of the tar insulation, at least for driver's side. It looks to be a true no-rust floor. The part near driver's heel that I...

Fascinating. I do believe in the power of dry ice. This is a new application yet also makes sense. Some of the areas of insulation seem to be put on with JB Weld or the like, plus 40 years of...

Man that's excellent. So it's worth taking off all the factory stuff to see what's underneath. Kind of like catching a bad tooth in time to do a filling, instead of waiting too long and having to...

Is this floor a case for POR-15 or........?

I've done a little test sanding and it reveals good metal, in most cases the original factory off white. It looks horrendous, but it's just rusty "dust" mostly at this point. Can I sand and use...

The gluing has begun. Man that weatherstrip adhesive is some finicky brew. Lessons learned: for me it's at least a 3 or 4 day operation to do it right. This is because I must let it fully dry...

Such a thing as minor rust repair scrape off?

Tried searching, but most of the rust repair was cutting, welding, holes, matching metal pieces etc. I have the classic rear corners on the deck under hatch that each have about a silver dollar...
