van was a total wreck to full rear corners complete rear side panel inner outer sills both arches list goes on. i will scan some b4 piccies when i have 5mins. i .may get some of the pop glass made up in sets to sell nxt year not sure on costs yet as the catches cost £160.00. lots of fabricating bits and bobs to get them to fit. glass was pricey to i think they would cost aroung £1000.00 with seals etc and fitting kits not to sure yet. will make a second sett up in winter to total cost. like i said there has been days of work just working out how to use splitty catches. nxt sett will be even better..

Question from me:

Are you a Body Repairer / Sprayer by trade?

If not how did you learn how to do it and can you point me in the direction so i can tackle mine......any help would be appreciated.
