Looking good! You and I should speak, my Hornet project is in almost exactly the same state, and it looks like we have gone about it the same way!

Looking fantastic! Although I hope you have not secured that back seat yet, otherwise it will have to come out again to get the rear door cards in properly and easily Very Happy

Hilbert, I notice you have rear opening windows installed. Does that mean I can stop looking?
