After asking if anybody wanted the rotisserie I made and having no takers I decided to turn it into a mechanics creeper.

bit of mdf should finish it of and help save my back.

Finally got some paint around the window surrounds so I can put the front and back screens in and the quarters side windows.

im really liking the colour.

its a direct match to the old viva wagon.

Got the tach mounted today and the front and rear screens cleaned up ready to install.

Found a place in the UK that sells all the rubber and trim pieces for a decent price. Cheaper than rare spares.

Polished up the front and rear screens as best I could and removed a couple of decent scratches.

Me and my daughter managed to get the front screen in today using the old rope technique and a bit of swearing.

I don’t know we’re she learnt that from.

The rear screen rubber comes formed for the corners and gets cut and shut which I did today so hopefully get that one in tomorrow.

The guys at Basis are checking out the original quarter glass rubber to see if they have something that will work as I’m not running the trim on them.
