^ Temporarily install the new parts and measure each part of the new parts in accordance with the body dimension diagram. (See the body dimension diagram)
^ Inspect the fitting of the related parts around the new parts before welding. This affects the appearance of the finish.
^ After welding, apply polyurethane foam to the corresponding parts.
^ After welding, apply body sealer and undercoating to the corresponding parts.
^ After applying the top coat, apply anti-rust agent to the internal panel portion of the closed section structural weld points.
Before temporarily installing the new parts, apply body sealer to the reinforcement, side impact protection beam and backside of the new parts.
1) Apply sealer evenly of about 10 mm (0.39 in.) from the flange and 3 mm (0.12 in.) in diameter on the outer panel and apply just enough sealer for the reinforcement and side impact protection beam to make contact.
Bend the flange hem about 30° with a hammer and dolly. Then, fasten tightly with a hemming tool. HINT:
