Thanks,

Make it sound easy, remember stringing a window in years ago on an old fiesta but to be honest, rather have help this time in case I balls it up! , Scotty is at Lanark I think? was going to check with him as closer but if your going to back up in Scotland soon and free, can let me know.

Sadly  I am in Poole Dorset so cant offer practical help. When i needed to change my glass I got the local glass firm (not Autoglass or one of the big chains) to do it for me. Cost me 30 to have a screen fitted but they said quite rightly that the work was at my risk and if it all went wrong and the shield cracked they wouldn't be liable to buy me new glass.  All done in 30 minutes. They found it quite novel to string a shield in - a couple of the guys there had never seen it done before.  - Scotty

Hi Scotty,

Thought you were local, must be someone else I'm thinking of...Yes wondered about using a glass firm or there is a classic resto place near my work, miss all the fun doing it yourself ha

Autoglass were going to charge a small fortune to fit the window seals! :o Local garage I know can do it, roughly 100 for front/rear, always the small chance that the glass might break but fingers crossed, he's done hundreds over the years.

Another question, where is the best place to buy fuses in the UK? 16A Ceramic as per link below.

Edited to say, found these, seem the same ones.

Thanks Scotty, yeah I'm quite pleased with the colour and how it's turned out. The chrome against the blue works well! Still to give it a wash n buff and clean up the wheels.

Many thanks Dave! Bit better than the beige. Been quite fun stripping it down and putting it all back together. Notice I said quite ha.

Looking superb, the blue definitely sets it off, liking the retro touches like the mirror etc too, get it polished and have some fun in it  ^-^

Cheers! I've not got the smallest of hands for working on cars ha - Mirrors were fun to fit with the glass still in! as were the rear door handles  >:(

Yip that's the plan  ;D Might change the front seats again, not sure about the buckets...
