So, now to put the window back in with a new rubber!

Not a job we were looking forward to as breaking glass can be on the agenda!!

New rubber was purchased towards the end of last year ready for this, I always go for good quality rubbers but for the life of me cannot remember who I got it from lol!! :P

Fitted nicely around the glass.

Wire method used and lots of fairy liquid!!

After lots of huffing, puffing and lots of swearing it finally went in!

Bit disappointed, as where the rubber is "welded" together it sits a little proud of the frame! As I say, I always buy the better quality stuff!! :|

Anyway, should now be back on the road as this was the very last job until Autumn!!

Need to drive it around, iron out any issues that may arise (hopefully none) and get the steering pin working as its a little stiff (or in fact working as it should be lol)

Started a list for the Autumn already which includes the front windscreens, think it may be a little nasty under those rubbers! :-(

Thought I would do a little update whilst I am bored at work!!

Here is Summer seeing the outside after around 9 months of being in the lock up having the winter work being done!!

Still got a mucky roof!!

Had to take her for a spin with the kids so went to the "Haunted House" (Abbotsham Cliffs) for some chips and to fly a kite with the bairns!
