Rubber moulding for rear clip to spyder
OK, I've used the search function and looked at 38 pages of threads in this sub-forum but haven't found what I'm looking for.
I'm finalizing body prep and tweaking my panel gaps starting with the rear clip and working forward. Without using any sort of moulding, the horizontal surface at the front edge of the rear clip sits maybe 3/4 inch lower than the corresponding horizontal surface at the rear of the spyder. Everything else (sill panel at flares, sides of rear clip at sides of spyder) lines up nicely with the rear clip. On my RF the spyder has a half-circle groove at its rear edge into which some type of rubber moulding should fit. The problem is I'm not sure what the right stuff to use here. I think if I have the proper moulding the rear clip will rest on the rubber at the correct height and I'll need little or no body filler on either side of this panel gap.
My RF kit came with a big box of various rubber mouldings and edge treatments, but none of them seem right for this application unless I'm missing something. So I'd like to look at some close-up photos of the moulding people used in this application. Ideally, if any of the RF guys can describe the rubber moulding they used here that may also be helpful. Thanks.
