+1 on the masking tape. it sits in the top compartment of my tool box, right on top of the ARP Taps and right beside the tape measure.

My local indie hardware store carries "Krazy Glue" on a display card that has a clear plastic bottle with 4 single use micro tubes inside. just enough in on tube for one use, no excess and no throw away. Handy, have one in my downstairs shop.

Yeppers.... We utilize 'single use' tubes @ my work to keep gaskets in place prior to piping/equipment assembly.
I keep 4-5 of them @ my shop for my emergency patch-ups.

Talked to Holley today after waiting like 45 minutes on hold yesterday, he says that I need to run the pink wire that is keyed out to the battery directly while also still running the aluminum foil. If that doesn't work disconnect the alternator, and then the electric fans cause they are still saying RF noise. Even though I had the aluminum foil on and the ground run to the throttle like they had said would take out RF as an option

Got back out to the shop for starters. Found enough 1" square tube that I could assemble a 5 foot long measuring/clamping stick/straight edge with which to determine how badly deformed the lower sill really was. Cut away most of the old shape and used a special dolly that I had made for the last door work to reshape the curve. Measured up from the new curve to my straight edge and found that I had as much as a 1/2 inch of air at the belly of the deformation. So the next trick will be to cut a strip of clean fresh body metal about an inch in width, clamp it to my measuring stick and then scribe it to get a cut line for the amount of material that needs to be grafted in to get everything back in line again. That will be a tomorrow thing to do.

Don't forget the Q-tips for getting into all those tight places like beside the chrome trim and along the seams of the seat covers.
