Must be great Ross working with perfectly clean components and underbody structure, rather than with the usual dirt / oil / underseal that you usually encounter on the underbody of the majority of our cars!

Finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel Charles, 6 years work so far and probably another 4 weeks away to completion. :D

Makes it look easy! My PI one is on, but slightly adrift at the top (has been for years and years) but will be staying like that. The rally car does not have it fitted. After much swearing, and it coming adrift so it beat the roof, it got ripped off! Must have spent 10 man hours on each. To do it again, I would now need new rubbers anyway!

I must admit this worked better with a another set of hands. The Valencia car is going to have a little re adjustment on one corner, couldn’t quite get it to sit right installing it on my own but going to have another try.
But the window rubbers are good for patterns 2 fitted now pleased.

I can see you getting asked to help fitting some trims or even to give a master-class Ross!

Fancy a trip to South Oxfordshire? :wink:

Cheers,
Mike.
