    man man man man.... I'm wetting my pants, so sexy it looks ;)
    My target is to work on the car each day , from a couple of minutes to a couple of hours ... and keep the family happy too of course
    Today, I re-installed the front blinkers, bumper and lights and thanks to Martijn, I leaned about the best approach for refitting the rear window.

    I will publish pictures of the entire car somewhere in November as I don't want to publish pics of the car in an unfinished shape.

    Next things to do: the mouldings around the rear side windows and the headliner of the ceiling.

    Today: painted the mouldings of the side windows. Tried to put the long moulding back in its place beneath the rear side window. MAN !! What a PITA !!! The clips holding the moulding don't seem to clip well enough to these small plates at the bottom of the window. Looking for a better way to to fix these mouldings.

    Next to that: some extra strengthening of the cardboard ceiling with fibreglass. And I removed the rubber strips of some doors I have in stock to put on the doors of the golden one :)
    It's quite a challenge to put these rubbers on the doors (window frame): a lot of vaseline and some heavy pulling ! The point is to not pull too hard so the 90° corner in the rubber doesn't snap !

    oops, that second-last pic was from my blue Mondial QV as a reference.

    Makes me remind if the fact that that one needs some TLC too soon :)
