I suggest you draw up a list of what you're short of so we folks can see if we have any bits.

Got bit more done tonight, rear lights in, an then to drill few holes for the side strips which was a pain as the rivots where to big so had to grind them down. also the clips themselves where badly made as the holes where all different, so after a few hours of jigging them an help from couple of mates we got them sorted, Very Happy
