    Just come back in from checking it in the car, just to make sure its not resting on dash, or against window, allowing enough room for the fibreglass coating.

    Its quite hard to see on the photo(to many mad colours ), but im currently smoothing it out ready for its coating.

    Yep, as above....Fay's doing brilliantly well for a toddler!

    Be careful them gauges don't get in the way of your vision Barry, especially at them roundabouts/intersections!

    5 quid a tub from "The Works" its 8 quid at Toys are us

    Anyways,

    Version 1 has been scrapped... it turned out a bit naff, and i used the wrong glass fibre i recon...

    so.. onto version 2...

    Got some fibreglass paste, and some filler as a second layer (easier for sanding)

    Firstly a pic of the binned verson 1, followed by pics of version 2.

    The second pic is from my eyeline showing how much of my view is obscured.

    8 Hours later... - the fibre paste has been filed and sanded down...

    second coat of filler has been applied, and for the most part is ready to roll. im getting a Dremel of a mate tommorrow so that i can finish off the front, hence the roughness atm. I realised i put to much paste on the inside of the furthest right pod hole, and because its in an akward place i cant really get at it with a file or sand paper.

    So tomorrow i should have the front completed, then remove the plactecine and ensure the holes are big enough, at right angle for the gauges (theres quite a bit of filler on the front to allow me to file of more to sort out the angles.) then off to b&Q to match up the paint of the pillars, and im done, i hope.
