Ford Model A Pickup Restoration November 2008

Since the temperature has dropped it is too cold for painting. Therefore I have continued the work on my wooden cabin.

The temperature in my garage is 5 degree Celsius and too cold for any work with the glue. Therefore I covered the cabin and heated inside with a small electric heater.

The result is 23,5 degree Celsius which is enough for gluing the wood.

The glue I'm using dries very fast, the parts have to be fixed for 30 minutes at least.

I have put some plastic foil between the wood and the sheet metal to protect the sheet metal. The plastic can be removed as soon as the glue is dry.

This is how I store glue, upside down. The reason is that the glue inside the bottle does not dry out so fast.

Finished!
