  16. Another bit done tonight trying to clear up the loose ends up now small repair to rear ended (was a tiny hole just needs skin over and then the drivers carpet strip and then as the bonnet been down I couldn't see the front scuttle and Jesus it was worse than I remember so cut out the rotten bits and started making up it's replacements but got late so spent 2 hours sanding front windscreen surround and underneath bonnet!! That's it till Monday now as taking wife away for 5th wedding anniversary (not told her on the way back I have bought a huge joblot of stuff for the beetle so see how that goes
