A little Sunday repair

So I took a break form replacing the microwave in the house. I checked off one fix on the slide moulding.
It's one of those things that get forgotten. The next forgotten fix is the fender well moulding are loose on all four. I plan to use sandpaper to rough up the area then liquid nails it in place. Trying to think of a way to clamp the fender to the body without warping it. I may have to fashion blocks in the shape of the fender so it will clamp squarely to the body panel.
Any ideas out there?

MTHook, looks like you have this under control - Have not had this molding issue yet, but have others!

We had something similar that I fixed this weekend: one of the cabinet door insert's was popping out. A little glue and a clamp and now all is good.

Try using a small “sandbag” style ankle weight - the kind you use for working out. It is a convenient size but offers a moderate amount of conformabilty to oddly shaped services.

Pete a heck of a good idea I have some of those laying around. I could put a board outside of the bag then clamp it to the body.
