110 t-post question for those that have restored a 110

Working on getting the seat box and kick panel that attaches to the back of the seat box etc.. installed in the truck and have a question.

In the pick attached where the arrow shows..how do you seal this area up? There is no way that I can tell right now to close that gap between the t-post and the kick panel. What did the factory do here? Is there to much of a gap on mine?

Any help would be great.

Thanks in advance

Tyler

Think I posted to soon. I just ran across a photo I had of a removed tpost and I shows a piece of foam seal of sorts there. Looks like the same material of seal that is used under the windscreen.

Does that sound correct?

Thanks

Mine is a NTO off a 2008 and it has a thick piece of foam there. That's it. It came complete with the kick panel like that.

^^^^^ Just what I did on mine... used that black sticky seam sealer.

I stuck some gaffer tape underneath that hole to stop the sealer form oozing down before it set.

Worked perfectly.

top tip... if you're building your 110, and like me, used seam sealer everywhere, then don't wait a day in between bonding those B pillars onto the back of the seatbox, then the next day deciding to fit the roof because you couldn't be arsed the day before.... those upright B pillars won't budge once the sealer has set! I had to use a ratchet strat to persuade them slightly... :-(

There's a 3M non-drip paintable flexible sealant that works well and won't crack.

Thanks for the help. I ended up using some foam that seemed to work well.

I made seals out of rubber gasket material and then added Maxiim sel leveling seam sealer.
