Interesting how the late sun and angle was giving me that Guy Cadbury colour look off the stripe.



The full width rear window.



Sliding windows





With neat sealing and finish



But looking through this last pic to the right of the windscreen you can see that the windscreen has suffered the quirk these cars have and has cracked over-night in the workshop.

Will need to get a Shannon's replacement fix it seems.

I'll post some photos tomorrow when I get a chance to test fit up the tonneau, to see how it has come out.

Enjoy
So, the big question is, WHERE CAN I TAKE MY CAR IN THE BRISBANE AREA IN QLD TO HAVE THE SAME ROOF/WINDOWS BUILT FOR MY PACE?????

Mr Shelby was forever thanking his lucky stars he didn't get what he asked for, because then it may never have won anything and no-one would have cared.

There you go Snakes, hooked another one and not a Jarvis Walker in sight.

Settle Simon, we've all heard it before

That's a nice top. Trimmed doors and windows look excellent.

When my BD hardtop arrived it also had windows but they'd made them flip up/out with gas struts.

Zacson, cant you simply get yourself a top etc from AP?

I wish mate. There are some issues there with supplying tops.

Blackmans are certainly one of the top trimmers in Melbourne with huge experience across the historic car range.

I'd be surprised if you haven't a number of skilled trimmers in Q, just need to discover where the vintage set guys go to for their work too?

Slowy - can you send me a photo of your bike boot carrier? I refuse to subscribe to the photobucket money-grab so can't see the pic in your post earlier!

Sorry Guye

Every time I've tried to open the forum off a saved tab on my computer, I've had error messages that made me think the system down again. Been trying for over a week!

PM me your email address and I'll send you the pics I have.

Marty did this work of course.

Cheers

Seems I also need to start swapping photos out to the other recommended photo hosting site IMGbox.
