the car had all its original layers of paint and it appeared to have had at least 2 resprays on top of that. Removing the paint proved hard work as nitromorse didnt seem to do much so it was all sanded off.Quite a lot of it by hand [ Attachment: You are not allowed to view attachments ] [ Attachment: You are not allowed to view attachments ]

I'm looking at these pictures and thinking: "I'd slap a headliner in and cover up all them holes!"

Which is exactly why my cars will never be to the standard of yours. Truly awesome.

Cheers Lyndon. So far just the tip of the iceberg. You know probably better than anyone how many unnecessary or unwanted holes there are ,or just areas that can be tidied or improved.
Word of caution to anyone thinking of welding every single hole inside the cabin. When you try to close your doors the air pressure cannot escape and so you have to close the doors slowly but firmly. Open the window slightly and the doors close easier lol

Now onto the one piece windows. There have been a few details about my one piece windows that a lot of people have asked me about especially the one piece aluminium surround so i'll try to show how we did it.
First i fitted a second bailey channel in each door to support the front edge of the one piece glass [ Attachment: You are not allowed to view attachments ] [ Attachment: You are not allowed to view attachments ]

When the vent window is removed, there isnt any room on the edge to make a hole for a clip for the new longer one piece scraper. I could have just glued the scraper in but prefered to modify the door so it could be clipped in olong its entire length.

With one piece windows, i never really liked the way the felt channel was really visible so we tried a few ideas to hide it slightly. Matty came up with the idea to make a aluminium surround like stock bugs have and as we've never seen anyone do it before we thought it might not work. After lots of head scratching we gave it a go...

Thanks fellas. I think this modification is one of my favourite parts of the car. And you are right Lyndon, this is one of those details that people dont notice but took so much work to get right.
