The old rubber and windscreen out..

I had to remove a lot of very very hard putty and silicone sealent..

New rubber in..just the "chrome" insert strip to fit..

New rad in place..and working well..

Got rid of the wire supporting the rear of the exhaust..now has a proper rubber hanger..

You know you can buy a tool to do this..my advice is buy it if you have one of the re-manufactured rubbers and a new strip!
I have never struggled so hard to fit a chrome strip..all i can say is that i'm glad i hadn't just sprayed the car!

I know, I've used it on my minis, I ain't got one but always borrow one from someone, this time the sprayer will lend me his, infact i'll either fit them this saturday coming or the one after, depending on the yet to do list I am compiling!!
