There is no point trying to teach a pig to sing. It doesn't work and it annoys the pig.

The resin is tinted yellow with purpose made pigment. I have a large tin of it, so it needs using. ;-)

Had a little drama on Sunday, (cat hurt) so nothing got done. Came in today and made a lovely job of the fibreglass work and waited for it to go off. I thought it had remained workable for longer than normal, which pleased me. I went back an hour later and peeled some of the resin proof tape off, to find the resin dripping out.

Guess what pillock had forgotten to mix the hardener?

What are those seats you have on the kitten? Looking at options for mine, and so far only really considered sticking on my kitten a spare set I have from the SE5a (original with perished diaphragms, so would still need sorting.
Might go for something like yours, if they don't break the bank...

Those are Corbeau GT seats. Paid £40 the pair, but that was very cheap! The Cobra Clubman is a good fit too. Otherwise, I'm told that the SE6a seats fit.
