Decisive stuff, Crusty, but for the A-pillar I went in through the wheel-arch which I thought was the done thing. :roll:

Hi Darryl, well we stood back and thunked fer a bit then attacked the wings wi' angry grinder as I wanted to fit them "jet engines". Going that way, we could also access the hinge bolts from both sides. The panels were glassed back alright and look fine but Pete's been doing this fer years so I wasn't surprised, he's good.

The car isn't finished but there's only the shiny Cheshire bits like door cards, rear seat backs and carpeting to do. It's back in PG so, with my arctic overalls on, I'd better get crackin'! Regards, Crusty.
