Update....

The car is of to a differnet trimmer this week, I've had the car for a few days so had a good look round it and peeled back the roof linner to check around, found some surface rust on the inside of the roof so thats been treated. Also noticed the chips in the paint on the door sills was from the door hitting the sill so realinded the door so it misses the sill. There was me blaming the trimmers :blush:

Heres a few more pictures, this is what the head linner was like.

After I peeled of the head linner, it was a little stained!

Test fit of the chrome around the hole in the roof

Image

Fitted the headlight holders. All tucked up in the garage ready for tomorrow. :hugegrin:

Got the car back from the trimmer, RJ Customising in Langport, nice bloke and very pleased with the finish and care he took with the car and at a good price, would recommended him to anyone near Somerset.

I went for a white headlinner in the end, thought it would be to dark in the car with a black headlinner. Just need to find some replacements for the wind deflector any ideas where I could get some?

The glass has been fitted, spend a long time trying to refit the chrome trim around the front and rear screens, I had sore fingers, what a pain it is to fit the trim in the corners.

Fitted some more bits now
