I'm wondering if this is eligible to be added to the DIY section by a mod?
Report back after it’s been in the rain first to finish it off ;)

Haha fair enough.

Doesn't look like it's raining... ;)

Great picture though - :cool: :cool::p:p

Ok, you do you. If you don't want to out it in the DIY section then so be it.

But I didn't say its currently raining. I said it rains last night. It has since stopped and dried a bit. With both cars in the frame having been driven.

Thanks a lot Blobcat.

Sorry for getting a bit sparky yesterday. I guess I was having a bad day and didn't realise until i re-read my message.

That's a great job there Conor, well worthy of the DIY section! :D Ours needs doing for cosmetic reasons, but that means breaking my recently introduced "if it ain't broke don't fix it" rule.

Just chiming in to say that after many rainy days, the boot remains "bone dry"..

I am thrilled to bits with this repair.. Next up I need to look at the boot struts and the rattling heat shielding.

Heat shield should be a perfect time to test your skills with the new welder
