    You been on the Guinness again ??
    Made a tidier template, the other one was made out of quite a few piece of cardboard, this one will make it easier to trace round the shape onto plasticard, 

    I haven't seen a photo of the floor of a Trabant van, but if it's anything like most vans, it will have strengthening ribs along the floor, so I will try to add these to a sheet of plasticard after it's been cut out, using thin strips of plasticard

    Finally got the body in primer


    Looks o.k after a light sanding, still haven't come up with a colour scheme for it 

    Made up a template for the floor that needs to me made from plasticard

    Inner wings and bulkhead fixed together, these are supposed to go in as separate parts after the front transverse leaf spring and engine block have been fitted, but holding them in place and fixing them together makes for a stronger joint and also gives a better finish when painting,

    Not so Pat, you can drive your car home after a test, even if it fails, you can then only take it back to the garage to get a re-test after the work has been carried out, the Ministry centre's are only for HGV's and PSV's as they now will not allow petrol powered vehicles onto site.
    There are only allowed to check items that they can see without dismantling anything, if the master cylinders are hidden under the engine cover, they are not allowed to remove it, it will only fail on rust or corrosion if the affected area is within 12 inches on a load bearing structure, including seatbelt mountings.
    MOT's are now being changed to four years for brand new vehicles, and will soon be changing to every two years for all other PLG vehicles under the European directive, goods vehicles and PSV will still need to be checked every years

    Go to your local motor body shop supplies, or a crash repair bodyshop and get yourself some "Panel Wipe" it's used in the trade to do exactly what you need to do, they use it to wipe down the vehicle before it gets painted, I use it all the time before doing any top coat after the primer coat, it won't hurt the paint you already have on there,

    Great news Harry, I had eye problems last year and had to stop driving for a while, which was no fun, but thankfully mine are back to normal, although I now have to wear glasses all the time,
