Can someone tell me if there is anything that goes between the wood around the top of the car for the roof and the steel top. When I removed the old roof, it seems like there was some sort of sealer, like roof tar, stuck to the bottoms of frame pieces. Thanks for your help
Nothing but some sealant on the outside edge.
Rand, I found the same when I did my Tudor. I just used black roofing sealant around the perimeter as Don describes. I'm sure some oozed to the steel frame and would appear like the tar did if someone replaces in the future.
John, Thanks for your response. I'll take a look at the roofing sealant. Rand
Loctite pl-s30 works great. Cures to a soft rubber and adheres to anything.
I would not use roofing tar; if it ever gets too hot etc, it might spoil your headliner or upholstery. I would use a seam sealer (used for sealing body seams before painting), or "dum-dum"--that's all I know it by; it comes in a rope or in ropes linked together (you have to separate them) and is usually grey in color--it never hardens completely, but does stay put once installed. I used it some40 years ago to seat the belt rail wood on my Model A and it's still doing the job!
