Update on 1990 georgie boy "project"

Set the dang thing on fire today!!! LOL Was having problems with starter and solenoid, so replaced both. Engine cranked but no fire, decided to "jump start" it with instant start product. Loosened up boots and shot 3 secs worth of "jet fuel" in intake, and cranked it over. Forgot to refit boots prior to this. OOOOOPPPPSSSS. It backfired with all that power intake and set off all the spilled "jet fuel" and my whole middle console went up in flames!!! Holy Cow, I grabbed a rag and started to beat it down but it kept coming back!!! I was freaking but maintained my composure long enough to keep beating the flames (approx 30 secs!!!) and not enabling the flames to melt my whole wiring sys down to nothing. PHEW!! After cleaning my shorts, LOL, 5 mins later got it running. Just a reminder to everyone keep your fire ext handy at all fazes of re- construction. Otherwise the project is ready for re-roofing, Anybody got hints on which to go?, IE fiberglass, rubber or even that new elastomeric compound stuff. Any and all suggestion would be appreciated. Tim

I would probably go with the "spray in bed liner" type product for the roof. Contact a local company willing to spray it if you prep it. Take everything off, just like you were going to put on new rubber roof. Remove the old rubber and tape and paper off parameter and holes for apparatuses through roof. Next day you can put everything back on and you will never have to worry about that roof again; just maintain the seams with lap sealant every couple of years.
BTW, glad you maintained composure and did not get hurt. Think safety and keep us posted.
