Picked it up from the docks in Southampton after its long journey over from NZ, and drove it home  :proud:

Damn Beautiful. Did they not give you any trouble for the wheels on top? I have heard that RORO services dont allow ANY parts in or on the car that arent essential to it driving to the destination.

After 3 years finally managed to re-install the door quarter windows in my 75 W&P 1275gt after my young assistant, despite the don't throw anything away except the old carpet, managed to throw the frames in a skip. Managed to fabricate some alternative frames and I'm quite pleased with them. Just need a new rear bumper when Minispares get them back in stock and all finished, bearing in mind it's a mini so it's all finished for now!

 Any details on that fabrication? It could really help with the Italian minis here that all seem to have those tiny windows and are all destroyed from the sun.

The actual small 1/4 window frames and glass I'd saved from the car when I stripped it,
The frames that they fit into in the door is what I fabricated from various aluminium profiles is that what your looking for.

No trouble at all for that, nor for the box of bits that was stashed in the boot - it was a bit cheeky to throw these things in/on the car but luckily for me it didn't result in any problems!
