    Some minor filling earlier today and then sanded off this afternoon.

    So I blew all the dust off with the compressor and then gave it all a wipe over with a panel wipe.

    I decided to apply a couple of coats of Reface (2k liquid filler) on the wing to see how it looks. Once this has gone off I will sand it back and see if anymore filler work is needed.

    The Reface did a good job in highlighting areas that needed further attention, so this afternoon I spent some more time sanding and filling




    I have also started work on the front passenger side wing

    I still cant get over the amount of space you're working with. You must need to keep things very tidy and ordered.

    It has been an extremely hard week or so.

    My father got admitted to hospital last Wednesday and sadly passed away Saturday lunchtime after I made the decision to turn the supporting machines off. A victim of Covid 19 which bought on chronic pneumonia.
    It is so so sad. Nobody could visit him in hospital. There are only 10 allowed to attend the funeral when I have had well over 100 messages on condolence. We are not sure yet whether Mum can attend the funeral yet due to her age and the isolation rules. It really could not get much worse.

    Just to add to that we have had to furlough all of our employees and have decided to mothball the company until the end of April before we review things again.
    Who knows what the future holds at present. Frankly at present I don't care.


    Anyway, with all the above going on I have needed to keep my mind occupied so have been pottering away on the car.

    On the passenger door I realised that when I cut out the excess fibreglass I removed too much, meaning when the door seal was fitted it did not actually seal on part of the door.

    So I bonded a section of fibreglass onto the body




    Then I trimmed it back and glassed over it




    Next job was to remove the door and start filling again
