Tidied up a few interior trim bits today, glued the headliner down as the rubber seal round the hole in the roof (technical term ) was not on there, gonna sort that once the glues dried. And got my tires on the wheels, slow day as baby parties took priority (keep Lisa sweet :mrgreen: )

Figured out the rear springplates, also need to fit new rear wheel cylinder, pads etc on the rear, as its a bit leaky
