Looking great, well worth the time you are spending to get a superb finish. I love the way you have blended the screen flange in the shell, maybe you could give us some idea of how you achieved this. Just collecting ideas at the moment in readiness to start building. Will have to have doors on mine tho as getting to old for getting my leg over!!!!!

first bond it on with some sicaflex and hold it in place with self tapping screws, after this has had a few days to set remove self tappers and replace with some 5mm counter sunk nut and bolts, then i just blend over with a filler.. hope this gives ya some idea

Sounds cool! I'd heartily recommend some form of head wear for the b-road blats, flys in the mouth are one thing, but i never realised how many kamakazi head butting flys there are

Very well trimmed, they look very comfy. I like all the detailing as well, what have you done to the dash?

Nice colour combo - dark red with a tan interior. Those seats look very nicely stitched too. Are they leather?
