Lovely bit of kit and a rewarding project in itself :)

 :-)) You're absolutely right Jim, they are fabulous kits, not much flash (if any) on the metal fittings, everything is first class, brilliant instructions too, although I must say the Dremel Moto Saw is a good investment for cutting out, especially the windows....



Also I've found cheap knife sets from the Euro shop are rubbish , I eventually got a real Stanley knife (the chunky fella) with spare break off blades and it made a real difference...

Well the sun stayed out here, so the dreaded spraying commenced, typically the wind picked up but the results turned out grand...





2 coats of grey primer and 2 coats of red oxide primer.

Here's  a few more pics coz I know yous lot like 'em ........
