Had a very late night yesterday getting glass in the doors & seals on,so i could drive to the spray shop today. (everybody we passed did a double take :D )
Had the bonnet fitted & new headlining- which looks amazing.took longer than we all thought but was well worth it.
Its booked in for mot on monday so have 1 day left to do all the other bits & bobs.
