Installers at the factory used contact cement for the pieces along the drop at the door, and screws for the floor rugs to hold them in place. I suggest you get a copy of the Body/Trim Assembly Manual for your year of car as it will show and describe in step-by-step detail how it is installed.

I try to play a little guitar. Been trying for about 45 years now. Maybe I'll get good at it someday. It's a shame you're so far away. We've been looking for a good drummer for ages.

I bought the flooring and side material years back from MACs for my '58 and it was fine and matched the original well. Not long after I bought the spare tire cover and found it a poor match; eventually returned it. I would be curious as to what success others have had in getting a match on all 3 areas.

When I was a kid, my drum set (bass, snare, 2 toms) just fit into the trunk of my Dad's Squarebird, something we were impressed with . . . As I occasionally tell people: "That is a trunk! "
