    My head can’t compute that How does it fit inside if it’s taken from the outside (apologies if it’s blastingly obvious)?

    How can the larger outside (thin moulding) fit inside when it is slightly wider and longer.
    Trim it to fit plus it is very flexible......

    It will take up a slightly different profile inside.....the void space would taper.
    Might fill up this space with 2-part expanding foam.

    Hope this solves the conundrum

    But this helped.

    Got it, so the “thin layup” is what gives you the flexibility - clear now.

    Thanks

    I used the same trick (in reverse) when I made white GRP footwells for my Crendon.

    Roll bar, no problem.

    you need a Claytonrite seal to fit the rear screen measure the top flange thickness and the screen thickness and order away.
    I got mine from Phoenix Trim, they do loads of different profile seals.

    Hi Stu - what rubber strip did you use for the lip that goes round the rear of the hardtp where it meets the rear deck on the body?
    thanks Kev
