Mainly a roller, along with a brush for the fiddly bits

Nice. My 1970 IIA station wagon would benefit from a similar treatment. Its on the to-do list. cb1

A few more bits done today.

Started with the doortops.  Had to get the glass out of the old ones, and then fit the window channel and glass into the new frames.  A bit fiddly, but quite satisfying.



Next were the vent seals.  When I got it there weren't any, so it was even draughtier than usual.  Another easy enough job, and I found a tube of gutter sealant was a good way to fix them in



Lastly new numberplates.  I went for pressed steal ones, as they look better than plastic ones.

Thanks chaps.

I'm going to have a go at painting the inside next, and getting the new seats in
