We have made Polycarb one piece windows....keep the weight down.

No idea that the rear lights are from but steve made the number plate light from some african teak.

We have gone for the leather stapes as they are what was used to keep the engine lids down on the hot rods of the early days!

For an MOT a windscreen is not need, so then no windscreen wipers are need or washer jets. the reason we haven put the front window in is because it has to be glass, which we haven't got! A polycarb one will go in after.
