    Crikey......

    That's all I seem to be doing at the moment.....

    Just hope we have a great Summer and it's all worth it.....:BigGrin:

    Could do with a stronger £ to the $ though.

    Any one else out there with a passion for self-builds / restoration?

    Remember the age old saying, measure twice, cut once.

    I usually do it the other way round and c??k up the task, then spend hours attempting to rectify the situation. Every task becomes a marathon:Rofl1:

    Order
    cut
    wire
    and paint:thumb:

    The recent Landy mot was like that - having welded up every hole, it is now damp as the water was previously happily flowing straight through! And there was me thinking I had bought one with good sunroofs that didn't leak :Rofl1:

    After that, I have the Spitfire to do!

    Mine's fibre glass....Not the RV .....The Rv is pretty solid...just a few small problem spots now mostly sorted/welded, painted and undersealed...

    Don't have the body rot problem...

    Thank Goodness..

    You're right...I sometimes think they are designed to "run-through" and by welding up those outlets the problem really manifests itself...:Rofl1:

    Buy a Hard top?
