    Well done Phill. Nice to see you keeping up my tradition of maiden runs via random fuel tank.

    The car actually has a brand new fuel tank fitted. Unfortunately no fuel filler system installed yet , hence the temporary lash up..

    After some advice from Dirk - I decided it was finally time to bond in the windscreen.

    Last night I masked up the inside of the screen and painted on an obscuration band using sealant that had been thinned slightly with cellulose thinners.

    With the masking tape removed I had a neat finish on the screen

    Next I masked up the aperture

    And re-masked the screen inside and out

    Then I applied a thick bead of sealant all around the flange and popped the screen into place. Then I added more seant into gaps at the edges and smoothed it all off with my fingers.

    And with the tape removed it didn't look bad at all.

    Just a couple of bits that look a bit messy - decided to wait until it's all dried before re-masking and touching up.

    That's one more job I've been dreading scored off the list

    Another great job Phill. Well done! There can't be too many jobs left on your 'To Do' list. Are you intending to complete the bear minimum required to get an MoT and then tinker with the rest?
    Cheers, Alistair

    You're not the first to accuse me if mollycoddling the Nova - my wife says the same. Mind you I think there may be some degree of jealousy involved...

    Main jobs left to do are wiring,instrumentation, wash wiper system along with a 1001 other things, but I will mainly concentrate on getting it the point where it can be MOT'd as Alistair suggested.
