Some Fixing, Finishing, and Some Prepping

I lightly sanded the feet and sprayed another coat of primer on them. This should do them until the white paint… or more primer after I cut the motor holes.

I then fixed the skins in the the area where the Super 77 didn’t adhere the skins very well. I mixed up some JB Weld and clamped the skins together.

Next I started preparing the front skins to be bonded together. First I needed the coin slots to be able to attach to the skins. I had already cut the holes, but I needed to coutner sink the screw heads to be flush with the inner skins. I then used some of the JB Weld mixture and welded the screw heads onto the inner skins.

Yes, from the images you can see that the coin slots are backwards. This is to keep the coin slots away from the JB Weld on the screws but still keeping the screws aligned and in position.

First thing I had to do was check to see if the Coin slots fit the skins. A dry fit showed that they did not. I tested the openings to see which areas needed to be filed. After the openings were widened, I marked the location on the frame rings to be cut. A notch had to be made to allow the coin slot strip to sit in it’s proper place. After The marks were made, the dremel came out. A test fit and adjustment later, everything fit. I just have to mount the strip to the inner skins and they are done.
