Put one door on to see if the paint on the doors matched. The doors were painted a year later with paint mixed this summer. Cant find issues with the color match and dont care that much i just want this sucker on the road!

Window frame time
Baby powder helped slide the outer door seal and vent wing glass to frame seals.
I used safari window seals for vent wing seal. I had a wooden jig to help press the glass in.

Hi Rob I didn't realize you were able to buy an SO42 kit from the driver of your delivery or am I getting that wrong? Looking forward to tips on the silly vent seals Wink

Also can you provide more details to this picture you had posted in my vent window post? I didn't understand it.

Stay healthy stay happy,
Linda

i'm _still_ working on this. It is legal and insured now. I still have finish the wiring, clutch cable and install the engine. Lots to do but none of it as time consuming as body work.
here are some glamour shots as I now have a better camera phone.

Sugar coated candy bus. I'm jealous of your shop heater for when it's cold.

Wow man looks incredible!
I'm cutting my jig today for the vent windows. I will take your advice on the baby powder. You have come a long long way.
