Good stuff Kidge, nice to see it is getting some use and keeping it active. Sorry to hear about the headlining, but there is always something in these projects that will raise its head as trouble. Sure youíll sort it.
Good to hear the paint oven hasnít unearthed too much, that is my big fear with the harshness of the nz sun is brutal and how the kit reacts and flexes is a big concern. Are the doors struggling to keep dry at the moment due the custom windows? You doing most of the prep work before paint or are you going to give that to others to have a play with? Cheers.
