Where did you get these panels from mate? After prodding and poking around mine I need these too. How much were they?

Cheers,
Gav

Cheers Adrian, any progress over the Xmas period then? I've got a fastback handbook with detailed descriptions of refitting the chrome finisher in the window seals. As said before fit the seal to the glass, then install finisher for which the book recommends using a metal(copper) tube almost flattened at one end to open up the section in the seal where the finisher fits. Then fit glass back to body. I'll scan it in next week if it'll help.

Not a lot of work been done over Christmas, but hopefully progress will start again this week.
The drivers side turned out to be a little worse than the passenger side, so more rot cut out and new metal fabricated.

Hi mate, scanned that bit in - it's not as detailed as I thought, but it's a proper account of 'how to' so may be of some help.
