    Spot of fibreglasing today

    So following on from this yesturday.....





    I went out this morning to check that the holders lined up alright in the position they are in and they, although the bottom one is ever so slightly cover its very minor and can still clearly see the gauge. So got about fibre glassing it.....



    Once that was done and all dryed out, out came the sand paper to take out all the rough edges and bumps. Ended up with this...



    Needs a little more work on the one side but will be ready for a bit of filler soon enough. Then painting

    Oh and a little tip, don't sand fibreglass with a top off, its itches to buggery
