Mostly re-assembled now. I am just waiting on a new windscreen as I managed to crack the one previously fitted when re-fitting it.
The new rubber was just too tight and CRRAACCK.
This is the first one I have ever broken and I have done more than I can count.
Never mind, Ill sort it.

Once the screen is in, I just need to flat and polish the roof.
 
Sorry for the cramped photos, I am a little tight on space at the moment!
 
Cheers
Ben

well the replacement screen turned up but unfortunately the supplier didn't see fit to actually use some suitable packaging and it was smashed to bits :(

They will not take any responsibility despite the shoddy packing so ill hesitate to use them again..

 

Anyway, National windscreens to the rescue, they have one coming over on the 6am hovercraft tomorrow and they will be with me at 8:30 and are even going to fit it as part of the price.

can't grumble at that service.

 

More tomorrow

 

Ben

That looks great, Ben! Sorry to read about the screen, although a bit of serendipity with autoglass!

It just annoyed me because I have never broken a screen yet and hopefully won't again. At least not for a while.
