haha

tips are free as always. just make sure everything in the bay is super clear before you start sanding it down for primer. remove everything possible to make a clean job. brake lines. brake booster. wiring etc. and try to enjoy sanding the worst thing on a vl. once you get past sanding a engine bay down a few times. the rest of the body is a breeze

Alan you bad man! Question! Inside the car is there a rubber that sits in between the roof lining and the glass?

What if window has been put in already without it? Can it then somehow be pushed in? Just bought another Vl and lining is hanging down and it's got a new window so I've realised something is missing
