Tape inside door, same as spoiler tape?
« on: September 23, 2020, 03:38:33 AM »
I just picked up a nice collection of classic cars and parts that I have been looking at for quite some time. On one car I am pulling apart, I noticed the black tape behind the door panel. It is on the craft paper between the metal door and the panel. Two pieces on the bottom. That tape is the same as the tape under the spoiler. Also looks to be the same tape at the rear upper shock mount. Is this known info?... Danny

That's the one we're all trying to figure out. I found chalkboard tape but it's a little too smooth. It's also not made of paper, more like vinyl...Joe

Has anyone looked at, or tried, Gaffer Tape??

I've bought a roll and will try it on a '57 Nomad I'm working on now... no idea how well as yet that it will work or look.

I've found that exact tape used on the shock mount area and spoiler to be used on the door and quarter panel water shields. Comparatively speaking side by side was the same.

I remember the discussions. I just couldn't remember if we thought they were the same tape in all 3 of THOSE locations. I have been using Gaff tape for many years. SO sticky it sticks to dirt! I have never had to replicate it on a car, but if I did, Gaff seems a good choice. Tape on the door panel water barrier looks to measure a 32nd of an inch shy of 2.5"... Danny

  Perhaps shrinkage? Paper does shrink a little with age.

FWIW My bet is the tolerance specifications for the slitting of the tape by the manufacturer was/is/are greater than +/- 1/32.
TODAY rolls of paper are CURRENTLY supplied for printing with a tolerance of +/- 1/16 across the width.

Is it possible we are overthinking this? Could the "sticky" part of the tape be what is seen from the bottom side of the deck lid? These cars were not intended to be around in 50+ years when they were built. Would it be possible to see a picture of the entire area covered by this tape? How about one from the bottom possibly showing the "grain" of the tape? I also asked in the other post listed below to keep this discussion alive.
Thanks, Doc.

I have some pic's to start. I will try to get some underside deck lid close-ups of this car. Before moving on to another car. NOTE: I put a small dab of glue stick on the corner to fold it back down before re-installing spoiler... Danny
