    Has every winter I make some kind of change to my truck & repair anything that is in need.
    This winter I am doing repair to the doors where the old mirror mount holes where as didn't fill as I knew I should have & they where high lighting through the paint a little.
    Ground out & welded up, than body filler, now have sanded out will spot primer today & wet sand the doors & front fenders out, remove the hood & do the same they.
    Reshoot all & lay new flames heaver white pearl to match the bed. IMG_20170109_121235.jpg

    Another part of this winter work is redoing the upholstery work I did on the door panels.
    I got a 2nd set of door panels ( 4 Runner) & I'm doing the prework, there are small plastic mounting pins of which screws thread into, these hold the window switches plate IMG_20170110_115822.jpg IMG_20170110_115826.jpg to the door panel, & they break off over time!!
    I cut to fit metal thread sleeves ( 6-24 fine thread ) & glue these in place of the plastic pins!

    What kind of epoxy do you use for those mounting pins?

    I use E-600 to glue in position & than Q-Bond around the base of them.
    Q-Bond is a great product for repairing just about anything !

    Can't wait to see the final result. What paint are you planning to use?
