Thanks for the feedback.

A midweek least I think it is midweek but during these strange times all days are alike and equal.
But every cloud has a silver lining so I'm cracking on with my re-build....

I've now finished fitting the nearside wings.

The wing piping was time consuming and the joint between the front and back wings was the trickiest bit to get a neat finish. I used patent look smooth PVC 'leathercloth' over a 6mm plastic cord. Eventually I figured out that you have to bolt the two wings together before tightening the bolts to the body. Obvious with hindsight.

And another weird shot off my 'phone.

Now I can finish wiring up the front lamps....
stay safe everyone,
