Thanks to some chums on the AMOC forum I now have the elusive missing part for the sunroof mechanism, I may not have a working engine yet, but I’ll soon have a working sunroof!
The past few weeks have been quite frenetic, lots of meetings in the Houses of Parliament, lots of meetings with commercial demining operators, and briefings with Government departments. It was a very welcome weekend therefore up on the farm getting oil and grease under my fingernails.
It may not sound exciting, but it was a very constructive two days fettling the sunroof, painting and fitting sound deadening panels.
Malcolm was working on his Renault 5 and Phil on his Figaro and the sun was shining.
Pictorially the work i did is about as interesting as, well a sound proof panel.
As a hint it is best to use a heat gun to soften the sheet of material at the beginning – it makes it much easier to cut.
Then, once it’s stuck on, use the air gun again to make the air bubbles expand, and then pop them .
It’s a bit frustrating to be on a roll, and then have to stop, clear up and come home.
