I got all excited when I saw you'd updated this and then had an anti-climax when it wasn't finished! :whistle:

Pesky work getting in the way! Anyone would think that pays the bills or something! ;)

got the plug durabond premiered (all 12 coats) now needs the long process of wet flatting filling any lows then more primer then down through the grades from 240 to 2000 grit then a polish then the mould can be take of this
I think at this stage give a good idea of what its going to look like
I wish I didn't have to be so precise about things would take half the time

I no it's a shame you should have a go at the full hard top if the fast back works out!! Wich I think it will!

:ohmy: thats less that a quarter of the hardback conversion!

Think of the time and skill let alone the craftmanship thats going into building this buddy.

Could you build one for £200?
