Re: New member - Excel SA

You can use strips of metal across the gaps held with self tappers to support and hold the pieces in alignment whilst then repairing with fibreglass from the underside. Remove screws and metal strips and then do the glass repair from the outside.

Re: Pictures of my Excel

Welcome. Looks very nice. I particularly like the colour combo - mine will be the same soon. At the moment it’s got a tan 1/2 leather interior, but just purchased a full leather one the same colour as yours to fit. So great to see how nice it looks.

Driver’s door card

I’m looking for a driver’s door card. The late style with the small door pocket. Colour not too important as I will recolour it when I do the rest of the interior.
