Straighten Up!

It's the most unhappy people who most fear change.
Mignon McLaughlin

Once again a samaritan has come to my aid. The front passenger door has been aligned correctly for me by neighbour, Marius, and it opens and closes beautifully now. The incorrect striker plate was the cause of most of my problems but the hinges needed spacing and aligning too. While he was here he aligned the driver's door accurately and correctly too, brilliant. Where would we be without mates, eh? Thanks Marius.

Getting There

Wandering re-establishes the original harmony which once existed between man and the universe.
Anatole France

I've been doing random bits here and there but have spent a lot of time working on making a replica of the "rock n roll" bed hinges. Maybe I can make a few bucks selling it off to another VW lover. I have managed to finish filling and flatting the left-hand sliding door. It still has the odd ripple and wave but looks pretty acceptable to my skew eye. I'm hoping that it won't be obvious to the casual observer that it used to be a sliding door...

Front is still a bit wobbly looking with a few high and low spots but it's getting there - gotta keep on sanding!
