So, after fitting all the wiring and lights for as many weeks and months as it took me, after blowing countless fuses and burning out some wires it was all sorted now. Then I had the task of re-fitting the windscreen and side windows. The back window never came out as it refused to do so. It was left in the door so that was one less window to do any way.
However, I had to fit the roof lining first as this needed doing before the windows. At this stage, Sheila had a say in the colour and did all the stitching. That took her best part of a week due to her hands not letting her do what she wanted through arthritis. She managed it thanks to her determination. So after that was done, it was back to me to fit it as can be seen in the pictures. It was a challenge but I did it anyway.
Now it was time for the windows. Oh God not the windows? Yes, the windows. Well the front screen went first. What a job that was! After a friend gave me a tool to use it was a doddle. Then the side window's went in. They fell in if you know what I mean lol.
While I was at it, I fitted in some speakers In the rear, but I changed them again later in the episode.
So, that was the main thing done, now body back on, running gear was back in, wiring was done, roof lining done and the windows back in. So what was left? We will have to see in part 10.
