    Sorry John, that is frustrating!

    On a positive note, you can post it up as a fast effective solution over on the paint stripper thread :D

    Your project sure reminds me of my old Willy’s I rescued from a junk yard years ago. I put a modern drivetrain in it and painted it 1980 Corvette red.

    Your doing a great job on the project and taking me back down memory lane.

    did you use a catalyst in the paint? most of the automotive exterior adhesives are pretty aggressive I tend to use a thin bead and let it get good and tacky before applying the molding / weather strip.

    This is too easy, everyone knows it's the button for the beer dispenser. Under the dash is the spout.

    Ok, that works too, but I need a smaller set of buttons for dispensing cream and sugar. Just saying....

    Oh and the build in warmer in the engine compartment.
