Sika 252 is the urethane, Sika 206 is the primer.

I assume you know the procedure for fitting door skins & aligning the doors before it sets ...... Poke

A good hardware store like Home Hardware will get it in for you.

Thanks for the info, never done a skin before. Will research here a bit before attempting. Was going to test fit before hand using rear qtr and alignment with rocker as reference points. Have the old skins for comparison as well and they lined up pretty well with the 1/4 and guard.

Bunnings stocks the 252 but not the primer. It's located with all the other adhesives like Liquid Nails near the paint section. You can order the primer from them at the special orders counter.

Yes Bunnings have it, but I avoid that place like the plague. They are to hardware what Woolworth's & Coles are to food, scum. People that work there are useless as well, then again, you get what you pay for ......

While I am here on this thread, Muzzieat9, what experience do you have with car body repair?

I ask this as fitting door skins is not exactly straight forward. There are quite a few tricks & it is very easy to stuff new panels up.

Also keep in mind that the repo skins fit differently to the original ones & you have to know what to do, as you fit them, to make allowances for the gaps.

Sure do the ones that went on Matt's E car build ended up with bugger all left to roll on the bottom towards the front to get the gaps right.

No experience with door skins, so far have done cowl repair, replaced both front rail extensions, both toeboards, both long floors and added torque boxes and made a battery delete inner fender to match the LHS.

On a scale 1-10 (10 being difficult) how hard are they to get right?
