"Eva-Ann"

Post by Batman » Fri Oct 12, 2018 7:57 am

I'm a IT oke. So this is a big project I'm taking on. I only have about 2 hours time at night to work on my baby so this is going to be a very long project.

Good going Batman! Regarding your metal work - I would've just filled those holes you're trying to cover with those large sections.

Removed, must be 30 year old window tinting from the rear window yesterday.
Heat-gun and a old bankcard did the trick. Took me about 3 hours.
