Been out again tonight, straightened out the scuttle panel below the windscreen and then leaded the small dents up, cleaned all the roof gutters out and treated them for rust inhibitor.

was out at the unit yesterday and took a look at the rear panel which we originally thought could be repaired, but it's in a pretty bad way..









Been digging around to find a replacement, seemingly almost as difficult to get hold of as the front one in any condition.

Finally today i've landed one. It's NOS but has been painted to protect it Very Happy







This should save some time and make for a better finish so i'm happy Very Happy
