Door bottoms and duramix

Earlier I posted about fixing my door bottom. Then Truckernix posted about Duramix glue. Is the duramix glue fix good enough to put a replacement bottom on the door? Or is that a piece that needs to be welded on?

I hung bedside panels with Duramix on my 63. I am very pleased and would do it again.

Feb 2003 Classic Truck Mag has a how to article you could check out...pg 38

my opinion? If it is a "patch panel", I'd do it. At this point I still weld anything to do with structure. A door bottom should work slick.

Can somebody copy the article from Classic Truck Mag and post it? Sounds like it might be worthwhile.

the doors on my latest truck have skin patches of about 8- 10 inches at the bottom that were glued on and they worked and look great. think I'd always use it anywhere there were factory pinch welds in need of patchin - eliminates the voids that fill up w/ damp crud and then rot.

when I replaced my rear bottom corners I cut and fitted the replacement corners like I would do a butt weld and than I took a 2" metal strip and shaped it
to the curve of the cab. I glued this strip on the inside of the cab and let the strip overlap by 1"
this 1" gave enough surface area for the replacement corner.
I did the same thing on the vertical section and the front section it self glued to the door frame.
I have a few pictures on my web site. check them out.
I would use Duramix an the door panel. Duramix does not recomand the use on structual pieces.
Duramix has different systems for different jobs. some fast curing and some slow curing.
I figures since I am a novice I use the slow curing
If some body can't find Duramix, I understand 3M has also a glue system .

Where did you guys buy Dura-Mix? It sounds like something that can fit on my garage shelf.

Ackland Granger stocks the whole line.
Ask for a application chart. It will show all different systems.
You need a dispensing gun, which looks like a double barrel calking gun.

Lots of places on the net sell Duramix. Just type Duramix in Google and take your pick. Also check out the Duramix web site for good info on the various products.
