good day today, refitting painted panels and doors, looks much better with the sun on it.
drivers door isn't shutting well due to new seals, is this usual?
bulkhead being bonded back in tomorrow and then engine back in on Sat.

thanks - yes, should be able to get on top of this now, painting has taken ages and still not got clams back yet.
Hey ho! -
took me most of the day to re-fit bulkhead properly and seal all round. Had hoped to get engine back in today too, but too many niggly little jobs still to do - the heat and then when I looked at the clock it was beer O'clock and Glasto!
