I had a local glass company cut mine after three sons, a football and the open garage door as a goal wasn't a good combination!

Ha ha ha .
Yeah mines just down to clumsiness.

I took it to the local Mareeba glass works and they do custom tractor and machinery windscreens so $200 and I’m good to go.

Thanks.

So good to finally mount the seats.
Dropped the body on for a quick fit check and it’s all good.
Body is off to the painter next week.

Nice one, seats look nice & snug, good patience on doing the speedo too! Please keep us updated on progress as it might seem as though no-one is looking, but there's still some of us ol' farts still here on the forum who love it! thanks for posting, Pud

Thanks guys.
The body is in the paint shop.
Roll bar is primed.
Looking for some good plans or pics of some nice front bars and rear cages.

Looking great, did you do the body work yourself?

right up to the last stage where I’ve surrendered it over to a good mate who is a spray painter.
He’s laying up the primer and the colour and fixing all my omissions.

Looking good. Will look even better when painted. Have you shared the colour or is that a surprise? :-)

The seat mounts fitted well after a bit of a tweak.

Nice. I think I’ll have to get a set of mounts. Saves messing about.
