Seals in place on windscreen and hood, waiting for the butyl to arrive which will hopefully be tomorrow. Small amount of adjustment to make but the April showers keep delaying play !!

The only issue I had was whilst pushing/pulling the car in and out the garage the steering wheel must have turned slightly. Pushed the car into the side wall - :oops: :oops: :banghead: :banghead: :bonk: :bonk: :oops: :oops:

I remained remarkably calm and I'm sure a quick visit to Chipsaway will have it sorted.

I'm so happy to have the old sponge holes things off the roof I don't mind the extra cost !!

Woops! :? , let us see how bad it is then, a bit 1500 grade and Farecla G10 might be all it needs.

Managed to touch 3 different panels !! All scuffed and go through the paint to differet degrees. I think one might polish up/out a bit.

Doesn't look too bad Simon. Get the proper colour and a fine brush, fill the scratches to level and leave for a week or so, tiny bit of 1500 grade wet n dry and soapy water , then polish... Should be virtually invisible. :wink:

Combined A pillar and header seal now all fitted - much neater - no more Sugru needed. ;)

Also bought these new indicator stalks, had them on a TVR before. The only problem now is driving the car enough to remember which stalk does what !!

Looking good, Simon. And your windscreen corner pieces look to be in excellent condition - much better than mine :clap:

Having now driven the car with the indicator stalks on, i find that they are actually quite slippery, your fingers tend to slip off them a bit unless you are quite firm in your actions.
