Vern's FC progress 31 Aug 2019.

Panel beaters code to refit headlight rim .... I got caught out, I gave Steve an old headlight rim to use as template to fit when he originally started on the guards, then we decided to make sure all is good. I took in the two good ones I bought to be used on finished car. One was the same as old ones and one was different, different ribs in the underside and slightly different shape right at the peak, my fault, any way as you can see he has written notes to himself on the job and its all going to be ok .... I cant show on here what he wrote to me !!!!!


Test fit bumper, front guard, and ď bitt Oí boggin ď

Good to see you back into it Pete. I bought APV general purpose belts through Repco on a '30% off everything' weekend.
The APV site provides a product matrix & contact numbers to confirm the correct selection.

I found Super glue good for joining end to end. I've recently tried Sikaflex-227 Auto and Construction Sealant. It starts to cure quickly so after setting up & testing the fit, I found sections were easier to manage & keep clean rather than attempting a large opening in one go. Once left overnight it's there for good unless you deliberately pull it back. It can be carefully pulled away from the rubber & paint if you really need to without causing damage. I had a couple of goes at some sections & found this was a real advantage.

Ditto. Same problem with the boot lid sitting high. Rubbers were purchased from Thompsons. Some came in RS bags, some in unmarked bags. I thought they were all from the same source(s) at the end of the day, each supplying different components to make up a full kit. Apart from the boot & the rear window I thought they were good. I have also considered re using the original boot rubber. The point about the old rubber square being smaller is interesting - would it allow more room for the rubber to squash down into shape?
